Low fat taco casserole

I seen this yummy looking recipe over on this blog and will be trying it out soon.

24 Tortilla Chips
1/2 tablespoon Olive Oil
1 medium Onion, chopped
2 cloves Garlic, minced
1 lb extra lean Ground Beef OR Ground Chicken
2 tablespoons low-sodium Taco Seasoning
1 can Black Beans, drained and rinsed
1 cup chunky Salsa
2 cups low-fat Cheddar Cheese, shredded

*Toppings: fat-free or light sour cream, shredded lettuce, guacamole, salsa, etc

DIRECTIONS: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add in onion and saute for 5 minutes or until soft. Add in garlic, meat and taco seasoning. Stir and cook until meat is browned. Stir in black beans and salsa. Cook another 5 minutes or until heated through.

In a 9x13 baking dish, lay tortilla chips on the bottom. Gently press down on them to break them into bite-size pieces. Pour cooked meat mixture evenly over the top. Sprinkle evenly with shredded cheddar cheese. Bake, uncovered for 15-20 minutes, or until cheese is melted and bubbly. Remove from oven, and let stand 5 minutes before slicing. Top with favorite toppings!
