Taco Casserole

Serves: 3-4

1 lb. ground beef
1/4 c. onion, chopped
1/4 c. green pepper, chopped
1 envelope taco seasoning
1/2 c. water
1 1/2 c. crushed tortilla chips
1 can (16 oz.) refried beans
1 c. (4 oz.) shredded cheddar cheese
Your preference of toppings: Lettuce, tomato, black olives, cilantro, sour cream, salsa

In a skillet, brown beef, onion and pepper over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in taco seasoning and water. Cook and stir until thickened, about 3 minutes; set aside. Place chips in a greased 8-inch square baking dish. In a bowl, stir refried beans until smooth; spread over chips. Top with beef mixture and cheese. Bake, uncovered, at 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until heated through. Top with desired toppings.

Tips: This was a wonderful taco casserole! There is now a Post-it on this page in my cookbook with a note from my husband "Make this again soon!". The tortilla chips are a great addition and I would recommended serving some on the side as well. I also shared this recipe at Blessed with Grace's Tempt My Tummy Tuesday.
