Mexican Casserole


I found this recipe on allrecipes.com and adapted it for our family's taste.  We really enjoyed it.

1½ lb ground beef

1 cups salsa
Simmer until most of the liquid is gone

1 can kidney beans, drained
warm through

Grease a 9 x 12 casserole dish
Spoon beef mixture into bottom of the dish

Spread on top:
1 cup sour cream

Layer on top:
½ cup green onions
½ cup diced tomatoes

Last layer:
Grated cheese (I used Tex-Mex)

Bake in oven for approximately 30 minutes at 350F or until bubbly.

If your family enjoys olives, add them to the onion / tomato layer.  The original recipe called for crumbled tortilla chips on the bottom, but I found they got lost once the casserole was baked.  We enjoyed scooping up the casserole with tortilla chips instead of a fork.
