Mexican Casserole

This is a fantastic casserole that is quick to put together and reheats beautifully. Anyone who likes tacos or burritos will be sure to love this!

1 lb ground beef
1 pkg (or 6 Tbsp) taco seasoning
1 1/2 cups salsa
1 can refried beans
1 can corn niblets
4 tortillas
3 cups shredded cheddar cheese (or more!)
Sour cream & green onions (to garnish)

Cook ground beef fully, drain excess fat. Stir in taco seasoning, salsa, refried beans and corn, mix well. In a 2.5-3-quart round casserole dish, layer beef mixture, a tortilla, cheese. Repeat the layers three more times, top with what's left of the beef mixture and some more cheese. Bake at 350 for 30-45, until cheese is bubbly and starting to brown. Serve with sour cream and green onions.

Mmmm- we have mexican about once a week in our house and I am always looking for new combinations. I'll let you know how it goes down with the man of the house.... My feeling is that it will be a hit.

OK- I tried making this- I only had enough space (and food) for three layers, and I used Tex Mex cheese mix instead of cheddar, but it was really good and a hit with the Hubby.
I am wondering if toasting up the torillas first would make them crispy which would be an interesting texture? They might just go soggy when baking anyway.

Great recipe though
