Pinto Bean Casserole
1 1/2 pounds ground beef
tortilla chips
2 (15 oz) cans diced tomatoes, drained
4 (15 oz) cans pinto beans drained and rinsed OR soak 2 cups dried pintos overnight, then cook until soft
2 cans tomato sauce
1 pound frozen corn
1/2 cup taco seasoning
shredded cheese

Brown the ground beef, then add the taco seasoning and 3/4 cups of water. Cook until most of the water is evaporated.

Combine seasoned ground beef, beans, tomatoes, corn and tomato sauce in a very large bowl.

Grease a 9x13 lightly with butter. Lay down a layer of crushed tortilla chips. Cover with the mixture from the large bowl. Top with shredded cheese. Repeat layers once.

Bake in a 350 oven for 15-20 minutes to warm everything and melt the cheese.
