2 / 2
  • 4 servings



  • 1 pound ground beef or ground turkey
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons taco seasoning mix
  • 1/2 pint (1 cup) salsa
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1-1/2 cups coarsely crushed tortilla chips
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese


  • Preheat oven to 350 F.
  • In a skillet over medium-high heat, cook the ground meat until it starts browning slightly. Add onion and taco seasoning mix. Cover and continue cooking for 6 to 8 minutes, or until the meat is no longer pink and the onions are translucent, stirring occasionally. Stir in salsa and sour cream.
  • Spoon half of the meat mixture into a 1-1/2-quart casserole dish. Top with tortilla chips, then remaining meat mixture.
  • Bake, covered, for 15 minutes, or until hot. Uncover, and sprinkle cheese over the top. Return to the oven for a few minutes to melt the cheese. We have plenty more Mexican dish recipes. Check out Easy Mexican Recipes Spice Up Dinner Menus.
