21826_456219217781592_1156404701_nI’m sure you’ve guessed by now that I like my food spicy.  😀  The beauty of this recipe is that it is easy to make in mild form if you like.  I really enjoyed this one, and had two helpings of it.  However, I do need to find a way to make the tortillas crispy, and stay that way through the baking process.  I think it would add a lot to the dish if I could.  Any suggestions on how I can do this?



Spicy Chicken Taco Casserole



  • 1 package of large tortillas
    1 can re-fried beans
    4 cups hot salsa
    1 cup of sliced black olives
    1 pound (500 g) ground (minced) chicken
    1 packet of hot taco seasoning
    4 cups of shredded Mozzarella cheese
    Sour Cream (optional)



  • In a large fry pan, cook your chicken.
  • Once chicken is cooked, add your olives, taco seasoning, and 2 cups salsa to the pan.
  • Simmer over low heat until juices are almost evaporated.
  • In a 9inX13in (22cmX33cm) oven dish, layer some tortillas to cover the bottom.
  • Next add your meat mix to the dish, then top with 2 cups cheese.
  • Add another layer of tortillas, then spread out your beans, 2 cups salsa, and 2 cups cheese.
  • Cover the top with a final layer of tortillas.
  • Bake at 350F (180C) for 35 minutes.
  • Serve hot, with sour cream (optional).

As you know, I’m no chef, but don’t heat and moisture pretty much spell Certain Doom for crispy?


    Yeah it does, but I still hope for a miracle or techie breakthrough that will over come just inadequacies.
