Marie Edler’s Taco Dip

Marie Says: Green onions are optional.  May be served at once, however, it should be partitioned & refrigerated if not served all at once.  We love serving it with Tostitos Scoops Tortilla Chips

Ali’s Famous Enchilada Casserole

Submitted by Ali
Serves 6


2 lbs. ground beef 2 taco seasoning packets
Fresh Pico de Gallo Extra thin soft corn tortillas
1 can Campbell’s Fiesta Nacho Cheese soup 16 oz. shredded Mexican style cheese


  1. In a stock pot, brown beef with pico de gallo. Add taco seasoning & the amount of water called for by the seasoning packet. Add soup. Stir until the beef has a thick creamy sauce, simmering for about 10 minutes on medium heat.
  2. Layer the rest like a lasagna. In a 9″x13″ pan, place a single layer of tortillas. Spoon in half of the meat mixture & cover with half of the cheese. Add another layer of tortillas, the rest of the meat, & then the rest of the cheese.
  3. Bake at 350°F until cheese is melted & bubbly. Cut into squares & serve with sour cream, guacamole, & fresh pico de gallo if desired.

Chef’s Note: If your grocery doesn’t carry fresh pico, you can make it yourself by combining finely diced tomatoes, white onions, cilantro, jalapeno, & lime juice. Or just dice up the tomatoes & onions & simply use that.
