Crunchy tortilla chips, taco-flavored cheese and seasoned ground beef bring the flavors of the Southwest to your table.

Ingredients

1/2
pound lean ground beef
1
box (4.7 oz) Betty Crocker™ au gratin potatoes
2 1/4
cups boiling water
2/3
cup milk
1
cup shredded taco-seasoned or Cheddar cheese (4 oz)
1
cup coarsely crushed tortilla chips

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 400ºF.
  • 2 Cook beef in 10-inch skillet over medium heat 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until brown; drain. Stir together Potatoes, Sauce Mix, boiling water and milk in ungreased 2-quart casserole. Stir in beef and 1/2 cup of the cheese.
  • 3 Bake uncovered about 30 minutes or until top is light golden brown. Sprinkle chips over casserole; sprinkle remaining cheese over chips. Bake 5 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Let stand 2 minutes before serving.
Tips  

If you're really a planner, consider cooking up several pounds of beef ahead of time and freezing it in resealable plastic bags in 1/2-pound (1-cup) batches. Then you’ll have it on hand for yummy dishes like this!

If your family loves salsa, serve it with this Mexican-style casserole.

Replace taco-seasoned cheese with pizza-seasoned cheese and use crushed crisp breadsticks instead of the tortilla chips. Sprinkle hot casserole with sliced ripe olives, and you have Pizza Potatoes Casserole!
