Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown the ground beef with the onions and garlic.
  2. When all the pink is out of the meat add the seasoning mix, water, cream cheese, corn, 1/2 the olives and Taco sauce.
  3. Let this simmer for 3 to 4 minutes.
  4. Crush the Fritos chips (I used the chili flavored ones, but plain will work fine).
  5. In an 8x12 casserole dish, layer 1/2 of the Fritos, then 1/2 the meat filling, and then 1/2 the cheese (regular cheddar will work also, I just prefer the combined cheese flavors).
  6. Repeat the layers and top with the remaining olives.
  7. Bake at 375° for 20-25 minutes, or until it is warmed completely and the cheese is melted.
  8. To serve, you can top with shredded lettuce, the diced green onions (tops included), diced tomatoes and a shot of the sour cream.
