Cheesy Nacho Bake

Brought to you by

These are pretty great and very easy to make.

1 lb. lean ground beef
1 can (14 1/2 oz) diced tomatoes, undrained
1/4 cup water
1 pkg (1 1/4 oz) taco seasoning mix
3/4 cup Sour Cream, divided
6 oz tortilla chips (7 cups)
1 1/2 cups Shredded Mild Cheddar Cheese
1 green onion, sliced

HEAT oven to 350dF
BROWN meat in large skillet; drain. Return meat to skillet. Add tomatoes, water and seasoning mix; stir. Cook 10 min., stirring occasionally. Stir in 1/4 cup sour cream.
PLACE half the chips in 13x9in baking dish; cover with layers of half each of the meat mixture and cheese. Repeat layers.
BAKE 20 min. or until heated through. Top with onion and remaining sour cream.

==Andersen Girlie's Cooking Tips==

-You can also make this on a baking sheet, but only one layer.
-You don't have to have the green onions.
-You don't have to have the sour cream either, it just adds better flavor.
-You can substitute the cheddar cheese with different kinds of cheese. For example, I'm sure Pepper Jack would taste great and it would add a little spice.
-If you don't have taco seasoning but you do have black pepper, chili powder, garlic powder and ground cumin, then use that instead. Just make sure you taste every time you add more seasoning to it. Don't add too much pepper, it will probably over power the mexican flavor you are looking for.

Serving Suggestion:
Serve with a crisp mixed green salad

Omit water. Substitute 2 1/4 cups chopped cooked chicken for the browned ground beef.

Prepare as directed, using Reduced Fat or Light Sour Cream and 2%Milk Shredded Cheddar Cheese.
