El Dorado Casserole

This is a favorite recipe of Linda Jolly. I normally double this recipe. Leftovers are especially good!

Recipe Ingredients

1 pound ground beef

1 medium onion, chopped

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

16 ounces tomato sauce

1 cup sliced black olives

8 ounces sour cream

1 cup cottage cheese

1 (4 ounce) can diced green chiles

7 ounces tortilla corn chips, crushed

8 ounces Monterey Jack cheese, shredded


  1. Cook beef until browned.
  2. Drain. Add onion, garlic powder, tomato sauce and olives. Cook over low heat until the onion is clear.
  3. Combine sour cream, cottage cheese and chiles.
  4. Layer half the chips, meat mixture, sour cream mixture and Monterey Jack cheese in a greased 2 1/2-quart casserole.
  5. Repeat this layering a second time.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes.

Serves 8.
