Tortilla Surprise Casserole

  • 1 -2 cans tomato sauce
  • package of small round corn tortillas
  • 1-2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 green pepper
  • 1 onion
  • 1 packet taco seasoning
  • 1 package frozen corn (or 2 cans drained)
  • A large jar of salsa (any kind of salsa - I use this liberally)
  • shredded cheese (cheddar or Mexican blend)
- Pam bottom of casserole dish
- Cook ground beef on the stove with chopped green pepper, onion and taco seasoning
- Layer all ingredients twice in dish: starting with tomato sauce to cover the bottom of dish, cover sauce with corn tortillas, cooked beef mixture, corn, salsa, then cheddar cheese. Repeat.
- Bake at 350 until cheese melted (usually 25 minutes), and broil 1 minute
- You can also add sliced olives to the top before baking

Thanks to my best Tiffany for this excellent concoction - she is a FABULOUS cook!


  1. Sweet! This one is good because everyone probably already has all of the ingredients.

  2. Made this a few weeks ago and have meant to post about how YUM, YUM, YUMMY it is. Just when we didn't think it could taste any better, the next days leftovers tasted even tastier. Just good, all around! For sure will be added to my 'usuals'.
