Mexican Casserole
1 lb ground beef/chuck (hamburger meat)

1 lg bag of Tortilla Chips (I prefer to use nacho cheese Doritos)
1 can Rotel
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can cream of chicken soup
2 tbsps sour cream
8oz shredded cheese (I prefer to use extra sharp Cheddar cheese)

Brown the ground meat (if available, I saute onions and bell pepper with my browned hamburger meat) and add taco seasoning according to the directions on the package. Crush, smash, crumble, into bite-size pieces, the entire bag of chips. In a mixing bowl, combine the can of Rotel, can of cream of mushroom soup, can of cream of chicken soup and cream together with the 2tbsps of sour cream. In a 9x13 ungreased baking dish begin to layer the casserole.....[1)layer of chips (1/2 of the bag), 2) layer of {ALL} browned ground meat, 3) layer of {ALL} of the soup mixture, 4)layer of shredded cheese (1/2 of the 8oz), 5) the remaining 1/2 of the bag of chips]. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees until hot bubbly hot throughout (remember, all of the ingredients are pre-cooked at this point). Top with the remainder of the shredded cheese and return to oven until cheese is melted. Enjoy!!!!
