Taco Lasagna Casserole

A very sweet friend of ours invited the boys and I over for a swim and dinner the last time Hubbie was gone for a week or so. We had a great time and I was so blessed by her willingness for us to invade her house at dinner time! This recipe is what she made for us that night. Add some chips and salsa or guacamole and you're set!

1 pkg small tortillas
ground beef (I use 1lb or little less)
onion (I used 1/2)
15 oz Mexican stewed tomatoes
taco pkg seasoning (I only use 1/2 a pkg)
4 oz olives
2 cups cheddar cheese
1 can chili beans

Brown meat. Drain. Add onion. Add tomato. Add seasoning.  Simmer 15 mins. In 9x 13 dish layer tortilla, meat mix, beans and then cheese. Repeat like you're making lasagna. Top with olives and crushed chips. Bakes 375 degrees at 20-25 mins.

We don't put the chips on top since we have leftovers and the chips tend to get soggy.... just our take, but it is good with the chips on top! :)

Sounds yummy. Will definitely go in the archives for our next Mexican meal (which usually comes about once a week).
