Nacho Grande Casserole

Turn this chunky casserole into a hearty appetizer by providing tortilla chips for dipping.


2 pounds ground beef
1 onion, chopped
2 (16-oz.) cans spicy chili beans
16-oz. pkg. frozen corn kernels, thawed
15-oz. can tomato sauce
1 1/4-oz. pkg. taco seasoning mix
3 cups finely shredded Cheddar Jack cheese, divided
3 cups nacho-flavored tortilla chips, crushed and divided
Garnish: chopped tomatoes and green onions


Cook ground beef and onion in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat, stirring until beef crumbles and is no longer pink; drain. Add beans, corn, tomato sauce and seasoning mix; stir until blended. Simmer over medium heat 10 minutes.

Pour half of beef mixture into a lightly greased 13″x9″ baking pan. Top with 1 1/2 cups each of cheese and crushed chips; top with remaining beef mixture and remaining 1 1/2 cups each of cheese and chips. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes or until bubbly and golden. Sprinkle with chopped tomatoes and green onions, if desired.
