What's for Dinner?

Mexican Casserole

I found this recipe somewhere on the internet (I have no idea where) but I've changed it so much I think I can call it my own. There really is no good name for it, I call it Mexican stuff, Garrett calls it salsa. The first time I made this I put pasta in it, I thought it was good, Garrett said he would like it better with chips. So, that's how we do it. You could do it with pasta or rice if you wanted just remember to cook the pasta or rice only about half as long as you normally would. Other than that this is the easiest thing to make.

  • 1.5lb Ground Beef if you only have a pound no big deal
  • 1 package Taco Seasoning
  • 2 15oz cans Corn (drained and rinsed)
  • 2 15oz cans Black Beans (drained and rinsed rinsing gets rid of a lot of salt)
  • 2 cans Rotel
  • 2 15oz cans Tomatoes (drained)
  • 1 cup Chunky Salsa
  • 1/2 cup Sliced Olives
  • 1/2 cup Taco Sauce
  • if you are adding rice or pasta I suggest you add a 1/2 - 3/4 a cup of Tomato Sauce.
Brown your Ground Beef add Taco Seasoning, then mix with all of the rest of the ingredients add to your pans and freeze! Cook thawed about 20-30 minutes at 350, cook longer (obviously) if frozen! You can add some Cheddar Cheese on top and serve with chips.

So, so easy! And even picky Garrett loves it!
