Beef Mixture




  • Use a large skillet and brown the beef over medium heat. Once the beef has started to release some of the fat, add onions and garlic. Continue to cook until the beef is no longer pink. About 7-10 minutes
  • Reduce heat to medium and add black beans, corn, green chili, taco mix, and diced tomatoes. Combine well.
  • Spread 3 tablespoons of enchilada sauce and spread over the bottom of the casserole dish. Transfer the beef and bean mixture into the casserole dish. Add one layer of tater tots.
  • Pour the remaining enchilada sauce over the tater tots. Sprinkle with Cheddar cheese and bake uncovered at 400° Fahrenheit for 30-35 minutes or until the cheese has melted.
  • Remove the casserole from the oven and top with diced fresh tomato and black olives. Serve and enjoy.
