Introduction

This is a throw-it-together recipe I made up. I lightened the orginal by using lean ground beef and low fat dairy products. It's one of our favorites! This is a throw-it-together recipe I made up.

Ingredients

    1/2 lb. 96% Lean Ground Beef
    1 pkg. Taco Seasoning
    7 Corn Tortillas
    1 sm jar Chunky Salsa
    1 sm can Green Chiles
    1 can Black Beans
    1 sm can Sliced Black Olives
    1 pkg Low-Fat Shredded Mexican Cheese
    OPTIONAL:
    1 T (per serving) Reduced Fat Sour Cream
    1/6 (per serving) cup Chopped Tomatoes
    1 T (per serving) Chopped Green Onions

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Brown ground beef in a skillet over medium heat. After meat is browned, add the taco seasoning, follow the instructions on the taco seasoning packet and prepare as directed. Add the beans and mix well.

Cover the bottom of an 8 inch square baking dish with 3.5 corn tortillas (tearing them makes it easier to cover the bottom of the pan). Add 1/2 a cup of the salsa spread on the tortillas, half of the meat mixture, 1/2 the green chiles, half the olives, and 1 cup of the shredded cheese. Repeat with the rest of the tortillas and other ingredients. Top with 1 cup of cheese.

Bake for about 20 minutes or until the cheese in bubbly. Cut the casserole into 6 equal-sized pieces. Note: The low-fat cheese may crust on the top, but the sides should start to bubble.

Variations: You can lower the fat even further or make this recipe vegetarian by taking out the meat and adding different kinds of beans and/or meatless crumbles.
