Southwestern Comfort Casserole


  • 1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1 clove garlic, minced finely
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 8 ounces Dorito corn chips, crushed, divided
  • 1 (15-ounce) can ranch-style beans or chili beans
  • 1 (10-ounce) can Ro*Tel, undrained
  • 1 (10-ounce) can cream of chicken soup, divided

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 2-quart casserole dish with cooking spray.
