Taco Casserole

I'm trying to clean out the pantry. This was today's attempt at using up lots of canned goods and frozen veggies:

Taco Casserole

1.5 pound lean ground beef
1 pkg taco seasoning
1 medium onion, finely diced
1 small bag frozen green peppers
1 can whole corn, rinsed and drained
2 cups salsa
1 (16 ounce) can chili beans, drained but not rinsed
3 cups tortilla chips, crushed
2 cups sour cream
1 (2 ounce) can sliced black olives, drained
1/2 cup chopped green onion
1 can Ro-Tel diced tomatoes, drained but not rinsed
2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
In a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook onion and ground beef until beef is no longer pink. Drain any excess grease. Stir in the frozen green peppers, corn, and salsa, reduce heat, and simmer 20minutes, or until liquid is absorbed. Stir in beans, and heat through.

Spray a 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray. Spread crushed tortilla chips in dish, and then spoon beef mixture over chips. Spread sour cream over beef, and sprinkle olives, green onion, and tomato over the sour cream. Top with Cheddar cheese.

Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes, or until hot and bubbly.

I'd love to post a pic, but there wasn't any left :)
