"A simple, satisfying main dish that our family enjoys. You can use reduced-fat cheeses and sour cream, but don't use the fat-free choices. Serve with a dollop of sour cream, sliced black olives, more salsa, and warmed tortillas."

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir beef in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes; drain and discard grease. Transfer ground beef to a 9x13-inch casserole dish.
  3. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir onion and garlic in the hot oil until onion is translucent, about 10 minutes. Spoon onion mixture over ground beef.
  4. Mix tomatoes with green chile peppers, salsa, corn, sour cream, 1 cup Cheddar cheese, salt, and black pepper into ground beef mixture; top with remaining 2 cups Cheddar cheese.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until cooked through and cheese is melted, about 45 minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.

We had this for dinner last night and my hunny loved it. We served it as is with cornbread on the side. It had a little heat but not over the top. We really enjoyed it the first time and he enjo...
