  • pounds ground beef
  • 1 chopped onion
  • 1 package taco seasoning mix
  • 10 ounces Rotel, not drained
  • 2.25 ounces sliced black olives
  • 15 ounces)= corn, drained
  • 4 taco-size flour tortillas
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese, divided


  • Place the ground beef in a skillet along with the onions and cook until the beef is browned and the onions are tender.
  • Stir in the package of taco seasoning along with the amount of water indicated on the package directions. Cook for 8 to 10 minutes.
  • Add the Rotel, olives, and corn.
  • Spray the bottom of a 9x13-inch dish with nonstick spray. Place tortillas on the bottom of the dish. Spread half of the meat mixture evenly over the tortillas.
  • Sprinkle one cup of cheese over the meat layer. Then, add another layer of tortillas on top of the cheese.
  • Add the rest of the meat on top of the tortillas and the last cup of cheese on top of the meat.
  • Bake at 350°F until bubbly, about 20 minutes.
  • Serve with sour cream and other taco toppings as desired


  • For an even quicker cooking time, ground beef can be cooked ahead of time. Store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or in the freezer for up to a month.
  • You can assemble this the day before and then bake it before serving.
