  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Cook and stir ground beef in a large skillet over medium-high heat until crumbly, evenly browned, and no longer pink, 5 to 7 minutes. Drain and discard any excess grease. Stir salsa, onion, mayonnaise, chili powder, and cumin into the beef. Remove from heat.
  3. Spread about half the ground beef mixture into the bottom of a 2-quart casserole dish. Spread about half the tortilla chips in a layer atop the beef mixture. Layer about half of each of the Cheddar and Monterey Jack cheeses over the tortilla chip layer. Repeat layers with remaining ingredients, ending with Monterey Jack cheese. Cover dish with aluminum foil.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until the cheese is melted in the middle, about 30 minutes.

When I make this casserole, I use sour cream instead of mayonnaise and crushed Nacho Cheese Doritos. If you don't have the individual spices, taco seasoning works out great. I like to serve this...

I replaced the mayo with 1/2 cup plain nonfat Greek yogurt; the chili power and cumin with canned taco seasoning, taco sauce for the salsa, 1/2 pound ground beef in place of a pound, and used a ...

Made this for dinner last night and it was quite yummy! Used sour cream instead of mayo, and cayenne pepper in place of the cumin and chili powder. Pretty spicy but yummy and quick to put togeth...

Easy Taco Casserole Haiku: "Totally easy. Swapped sour cream for mayo. Served with lots of 'stuff.'" I don't think I wouldn't liked this nearly as much w/ mayo, so I used sour cream, along w/ a ...

I thought I would try this recipe since it seemed an easy weeknight dinner. I followed the original recipe only adding sour cream on the side when served. My husband LOVED it! I enjoyed it as we...

Husband loved it! I USED mayo; thought it gave extra flavor. No cumin, just chili powder. 1 1/2 lbs ground beef, a 15 oz. jar of mild salsa, cup of diced onion, and BBQ corn chips. It was quick ...

I thought this recipe was great, I used hot Italian sausage meat rather than ground beef. I also used Light Miracle Whip. I have a very fussy bunch in my home, and they all loved it, and want ...

Made the recipe as written to see if I would have preferred it with sour cream, which I normally used, and I liked the creaminess better with the mayo. Excellent dish!

I have been making this for many years but always put in a can of whole kernel corn (drained of course) and use tomato sauce and salsa but no sour cream or mayo. It is an easy crowd pleaser.
