Tortilla Beef Bake

"My family loves Mexican food, so I came up with this simple satisfying casserole that gets its spark from salsa," comments Kim Osburn of Ligonier, Indiana. "We like it so much that there are rarely leftovers."

    Similar to the other reviews, we added refried black beans and frozen corn to the meat mixture (less than 1 lb of meat, which we also seasoned with chipotle seasoning). Also, instead of salsa, we used green chile enchilada sauce. This would make a great dip to serve at parties, too!

    Another family favorite since it appeared in your magazine several years ago. I have a friend who is gluten intolerant, so I replaced the cream of chicken soup with refried beans. She loved it.

    Made this for supper and added a can of rinsed/drained whole kernel sweet corn. Next time, will also add a can of rinsed/drained black beans and reduce the meat to 1 pound. Has a very nice flavor & is hard to stop eating!

    Very easy and pretty good-I would add sour cream to the top also.
