Mexican Casserole

We have many favorite, go-to dishes at my house.  One that we love and I actually  made last night is

Mexican Casserole
1 pound ground beef or turkey                 
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can Ranch-style beans                           
2 tsp chili powder
1 can diced tomatoes                                
1 package corn tortillas
4 cups cheese, shredded

Brown ground meat (I always brown mine with onion and garlic) and drain.  Add soup, tomatoes, chili powder (I used Rotel tomatoes and omit the chili powder because my family does not like extra hot dishes) and Ranch-style beans.  Heat thoroughly.

Lightly grease a 9x12 baking dish.  Line the bottom with a row of corn tortillas, pour half of the meat mixture on top.  Make another layer of tortillas and meat mixture.  Cover with half of the cheese.  Cover and bake at 350˚ for thirty minutes.  Uncover and use the rest of the cheese and bake for 5 minutes more. 

This is a great, fast, easy dish for any night of the week.
