Easy Mexican Casserole

I always say that Mexican food is my favorite food, but in reality it probably isn’t. I only really like nachos and fajitas.  It doesn’t really matter though, most Mexican food places have both of them on the menu. Even knowing this, for some reason, when I’m looking for recipes, I always seem to look for something that falls under the Mexican food umbrella.  To be honest, I’m not really sure what actually makes something Mexican food versus just regular food…I just knew I wanted to make a casserole that could last me for about a week.  Of course, I looked on Pinterest for the easiest “Mexican” casseroles I could find.  This one was adapted from a pin from Trickchef’s blog.  I don’t know that this could be defined as a true casserole or if it is more of a cooked seven layer dip.  Either way, it was really yummy and I highly recommend it for people on the go, like I seem to be!

Ingredients:

1 pound lean ground beef
2 cups salsa
3 cups tortilla chips, crushed
2 cups sour cream
1 (2 ounce) can sliced black olives, drained
1/2 cup chopped green onion
1/2 cup chopped fresh tomato
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese

Brown the ground beef until there is no more pink in the middle.  Add salsa to the meat after it’s cooked and let it simmer until there is no liquid.

DSCN0894This was a delicious meal.  It lasted about a week for me. I doubt it will last longer than that for a party of dos.
