Cheesy Fiesta Beef Casserole
Total TimePrep: 25 min. Cook: 15 min.
Made with Dorito/salsa tortilla chips and medium picante sauce, I personally thought this was a bit too spicy for me, but my husband thought it was worth making again. The next time I will try it with plain tortilla chips (a recipe option) and perhaps a little less chili powder.
Fab recipe. I make this for my hubby and me but as it makes a lot I share with my neighbors and they all love it. I never have to worry about left overs. Didn't change anything, no need as it is so good. Did use the nacho-flavored chips which definitely added to overall goodness. I don't microwave much so did bake in the oven. Just a personal preference.
Slocook805 you need to look at grocery store. Picante sauce is in the same area as salsas.
I love this recipe! Instead of nacho flavored chips I used Fritos. I also added back olives like other reviewers. I will definitely make this again. Thank you for sharing
Black olives would really be good in this. Good flavor.
I notice the recipe calls for 1 cup of picante sauce. Picante in Spanish means hot as in hot chilie pepper hot like Tabasco or Tapatio. Is picante accurate or should it be salsa? I used salsa and added 2 diced serrano peppers for heat, adjusted the seasonings to our taste, including adding some ground cumin and used all pepper jack cheese and 1 can of sliced olives
This was easy to make and turned out yummy though I used what I had on hand: 1/2 a 15 oz can of pinto instead of black beans; an extra onion and two Roma tomatoes, chopped; one zucchini chopped and a can of Italian tomatoes rinsed really well. Also added 4 slices of mild cheddar cheese on top at the end since I was low on the cheese. A couple shakes of garlic salt on top at the end. Yum!! My girls (14 and 17) loved it too!
Very Good and an easy way to use a pound of meat. I added additional chili powder, salt and chopped cilantro -
