  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 package taco seasoning
  • 1 c sour cream
  • 16 oz green enchilada sauce
  • 6-7 c Frito Lay Chips
  • 3-4 c Monterrey Jack Cheese divided
  • cilantro, avocado, tomato optional


  • Preheat the oven to 350°. Grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  • Cook the ground beef in a large skillet. Once browned drain, add the taco seasoning, sour cream and the enchilada sauce and mix.
  • Spread 1/3 of the Fritos (about 2 cups) over the bottom of the baking dish. Slightly crush them and spread half of the ground beef over the top. Next, add a layer of cheese (1 cup).
  • Add another layer of Fritos (about 2 cups, slightly crushed). Add the rest of the ground beef and another cup of the cheese.
  • Top with the remaining chips and cheese. Tent a piece of foil over the top so that the melting cheese doesn't stick to it.
  • Bake for 30 minutes then remove the foil and bake for another 5-10 minutes or until the cheese is fully melted. Let the casserole cool for 5 minutes and top with tomatoes, avocados and cilantro.
