This recipe comes from Recipes in The Mail and was submitted by Linda Mazur.


1 pound lean ground beef
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 onion, chopped
2 teaspoons chili powder
2 (15 oz) cans black beans, rinsed and drained
2 (8.75 oz) cans whole kernel corn, drained
1 (16 oz) package sour cream
2 cups fresh salsa
5 cups crushed plain tortilla chips
3 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
1 large fresh tomato, finely chopped
3 green onions, chopped (optional)

  • Preheat oven to 375ºF (190ºC).
  • In a medium skillet over medium heat, brown the ground beef with the garlic and onion; drain.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the meat mixture, chili powder, black beans, corn, sour cream and salsa. Stir until well blended.
  • Into a 9 x 13 inch baking dish, spoon enough of the beef mixture to cover the bottom. Arrange half of the crushed tortilla chips on top of the meat mixture and layer with 1 cup of Cheddar cheese. Spoon another layer of the meat mixture on top of the cheese layer, cover with remaining chips and layer with 1 cup of cheese. Spread final layer of meat mixture on top and sprinkle the remaining 1 cup of cheese on top. Top with diced tomato and green onions.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 40 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving.
