Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  • 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.
