  • 1 pound ground beef 1 1 1/4 ounce package taco seasoning or use homemade taco seasoning 1 cup frozen corn 1 (15 ounce) can refried beans 2 cups Monterey Jack cheese, divided 1 cup salsa 2 green onions, chopped 1 (2 1/3 ounce) can sliced black olives 1 tomatoes, chopped 2 cups corn chips (coarsely crushed or chopped)


  • In a large saucepan, brown ground beef and drain off any excess fat. Add taco seasoning and cook according to package directions, adding proper amount of water. Stir in the frozen corn.
  • Place crushed corn chips into the bottom of an 8x8" square or small rectangular casserole dish.
  • Cook refried beans on stove until hot. Add 1 cup cheese and 1 cup salsa. Stir until combined.
  • Spread beans over corn chips in dish.
  • Add beef and corn mixture to top of beans.
  • Sprinkle remaining cheese over top.
  • Sprinkle black olives and green onions over cheese.
  • Bake in a 375 degree oven until for 15 to 20 minutes, or the cheese is sufficiently melted.
  • Remove from oven and sprinkle chopped tomatoes on top. Allow to sit a couple of minutes, then serve.
  • I sometimes like to serve this casserole over a bed of shredded lettuce, and serve it with sour cream and guacamole on the side.
