Kids of all ages will go crazy for this Southwestern-style layered casserole. It has everybody's favorites: ground beef, tomato sauce, cheese and tortilla chips. Yum!

What You'll Need:
  • 1/2 pound ground beef
  • 1 medium-sized onion, chopped
  • 2 (8-ounce) cans tomato sauce
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 (9-ounce) package tortilla chips, coarsely crushed
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack cheese
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Coat a 1-1/2-quart casserole dish with cooking spray.
     
  2. In a large skillet, brown ground beef and onion over medium-high heat for 5 minutes. Add tomato sauce, water, and chili powder; mix well. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer 2 to 3 minutes, or until thickened.
     
  3. Spread one-third of the beef mixture in casserole dish then top with one-third of the crushed tortilla chips, one-third of the sour cream, and one-third of the cheese. Repeat layers two more times, ending with cheese.
