Baked Nachos Recipe

My family loves any type of Mexican food, so I'm always in search of something different. In this recipe, nachos become a main-dish casserole.—Janice Lyhane, Marysville, Kansas
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 30 min. YIELD:8 servings


  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 3 cups (12 ounces) shredded Colby-Monterey Jack cheese, divided
  • 3 cups salsa
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen corn, thawed
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 6 cups tortilla chips


  • 1. In a skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Stir in 2 cups cheese, salsa, corn, sour cream, chili powder and cumin; mix well.

"I made this one night after a winter storm when I needed some nice warm casserole - I didn't have any frozen corn, but used a salsa with corn in it that worked perfectly. Delicious!!!"

"I made this for a Super Bowl party. It was super easy and everyone thought it was really good.

I left out the corn. Also, instead of putting two layers in a 13x9 pan, I used two 13x9 pans with a single layer in each and baked it for about 15 minutes."

"Just a question on the tortilla chips, do you leave them whole or crushed up a bit?"
