Cheesy, Beef, Chicken and tomato casserole

Casseroles are easy to make and are family friendly.  This one you can make ahead and refrigerate until the next day for a quick and really tasty meal.

I love using what I have in my pantry and refrigerator and not having to go out for groceries every day so I do keep several staple items for the don't know what to make and I don't want to go out kind of day.  I like to get creative with basic on hand ingredients. Enjoy!

Oven Ready

4 or 5 large flour tortillas cut in half and half again to equal 8 to 10  pcs.
1 can 10 3/4 oz. cream of chicken soup
1 can water
1/2 lb. ground beef 
1 T. canola oil
4 oz. cheddar cheese spread or 4 oz. shredded sharp cheddar cheese
8 oz. sour cream
2 Roma tomatoes sliced

Saute beef in oil until browned.  Add cheese and cream of chicken soup and water.  Stir until cheese and soup are blended.  Take off heat.

In a 10 x 6 1/2 pan or larger place some of beef/soup mixture.  Layer tortilla strips, add more soup mixture and sour cream.  Top center of each dollop of sour cream with a slice of tomato.  Top with additional sliced tortilla strips and so on.  Sprinkle with additional shredded cheese and bake approx. 20 to 30 minutes at 350 degrees or until bubbly.  Take out of oven and let set 5 minutes.  Serve
