- 1 pound lean ground beef
- 1 small onion peeled and diced
- 1 package taco seasoning mix
- 2/3 cup water
- 1 can enchilada sauce
- 1 can (15 ounce) pinto beans drained and rinsed
- 1 bag (9.25 ounce) Fritos corn chips divided
- 2 cups shredded Mexican blend cheese divided
- 1 green onion chopped
- sour cream for garnish
- prepared guacamole for garnish
Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Prepare a 9x13-inch glass baking dish by spraying it with non-stick cooking spray.
Crumble the ground beef into a large skillet. Add the onions and cook over medium heat, stirring often, until the beef is fully browned. Drain off the excess fat. Stir in the seasoning mix and water; bring to a simmer and cook for 3-4 minutes, stirring often.
Add the enchilada sauce and beans; stir well.
Pour 4 cups of the Fritos into the bottom of the prepared baking dish and sprinkle with 1 cup of the cheese. Evenly spread the meat mixture over the chips. Top with the remaining cheese.
Bake the casserole at 350ºF for 18-20 minutes until hot and bubbly. Sprinkle the top of the casserole with the remaining Fritos.
Cool slightly before serving. Serve with chopped green onions, sour cream, and guacamole.
