Taco Casserole

I'm getting into the Cinco De Mayo mood.  This yummy casserole tastes even better the second day!




Taco Casserole
1 to 1/2 lbs Ground Beef
1 pkg Taco Seasoning
1 can Pinto Beans
1 can Rotel Tomatoes, drained
1 can Cream of Chicken Soup(or cream of mushroom)
1/2 cup Sour Cream

1 small can Black Olives, sliced (optional)
2 cups shredded Cheese, divided
1 bag of Doritos, crunched into large pieces 

Preheat oven to 350°F

Brown ground beef until no longer pink, drain.  Season with 1 pkg Taco Seasoning.  Add pinto beans and Rotel tomatoes, stir and simmer until ready to use.

In a bowl combine cream of chicken soup, sour cream, and olives, mix well. 

Cover the bottom of a 9x13in pan with a 1/2 bag of crunched Doritos.  Next, cover Doritos with the beef mixture.  Spread the sour cream mixture a top the beef and sprinkle with 1 cup of shredded cheese.  Cover with the second half of crunched Doritos (or less to your liking), then top with remaining cheese.

Bake in a 350°F oven for 25-30mn, until cheese is melted.

Serve with a dollop of sour cream, if you like.
