Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir the ground beef with the onion in the hot skillet until completely browned, 7 to 10 minutes; drain any excess fat. Stir the black beans, chili powder, cumin, and salt to the beef mixture; cook and stir until hot, about 5 minutes. Pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish. Arrange the tortillas atop the beef mixture.
  3. Mix the tomatoes with green chile peppers and cream of mushroom soup together in a bowl; spread over the tortillas. Top with the Cheddar cheese.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until cooked through and the cheese is melted completely, 25 to 30 minutes.
  5. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

This was wonderful! I made this last night for my family and it was delicious. The only two changes that I made were that I substituted one package of taco seasoning mix for the chili powder (I still added the ground cumin) and then I also crumbled up leftover hard taco shells and sprinkled them right underneath the cheese. This gave the dish a nice texture. The flavor was wonderful and we will certainly eat this dish on a regular basis! Thanks!

Firecracker Casserole Haiku: "Cute name, fun entree. I'll make again; however, I would make changes." I followed the recipe exactly, only I used a little less ground beef, and added a heavy sprinkle of "Taco Seasoning I" from AR. It came out a little watery and difficult to serve, and the tortillas in the middle were kinda a slippery afterthought. I plan on making this again, b/c the taste was spot-on, but I would combine the soup/Rotel w/ the beef and beans, and eliminate the tortillas, and instead, just serve it w/ crushed tortilla chips on top. Also making this extremely tasty was garnishing it w/ chopped lettuce, cilantro, and a blob of sour cream.

I loved this recipe, I left out the beans. I used two cups of fat free cheese. Also I shredded up the tortillas. Next time I will only use 1 1/2 LB Hamb, use Mexican blend cheese and add 1/4 enchilada sauce to the hamb.
