Crunchy tortilla chips, taco-flavored cheese and seasoned ground beef bring the flavors of the Southwest to your table.
Updated November 10, 2010

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

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 400°F.
  • 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.

  • 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!
