Monday Morning in the Kitchen: Fritos Casserole

I remember eating good, healthy meals as a kid.  Junk food didn't come into our home much, so I always loved it when Mom fixed this Fritos Casserole.



I've adapted Mom's recipe just a tiny bit (petite diced tomatoes instead of whole stewed tomatoes, for example), but the gist of it is what I remember eating as a kid.  

Fritos Casserole

Place a layer of corn chips on the bottom of a 9 x 13 pan.  Cook together 1 pound of ground beef and one chopped onion. Drain off the grease.  Add 2 (15 oz.) cans of kidney beans, one (15 oz.) can of petite diced tomatoes, and 1 tablespoon taco seasoning mix to the ground beef and onion.  Place on top of the corn chips.  Sprinkle 1 cup grated Cheddar cheese over the mixture, and then put one small can sliced olives on top of the cheese.  Top with a layer of corn chips and bake at 350° for 20 minutes.

Thanks for good childhood memories.

  3. This looks like a great recipe to try. I buy variety packs of chips for lunches and Fritos are always the last to go. I'll bet my family will eat them in a casserole however. :)

  4. Looks delicious and since Grampy has been complaining there has been to much chicken lately, this should please him!
