At our house we celebrate 1/2 Birthdays, which consist of a small present and the person picking their favorite meal.  This is one that two of my younger brothers will pick over and over!

1/2 Birthday Taco Casserole

1 lb. ground beef
1 small onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 cup tomato sauce
2 T. water
2 t. chili powder
1 t. cumin
dash oregano
1 can chili beans, drained
corn chips
1-2 c. shredded cheddar colby jack cheese mix
shredded lettuce, optional

Brown beef, onion and garlic in a skillet; drain.
Combine meat, tomato sauce, water and seasonings in a bowl.
Place 1/2 of meat mixture in a lightly greased 9 in. baking pan.  Top with 1/2 of beans, then about a cup of corn chips.  Another layer of meat, then beans. 
Cover and bake 350 for 25-30 min.  Uncover, sprinkle with about 2 c. corn chips, enough to cover the top well.  Sprinkle cheese on top.  Bake another 5 min. or til cheese is melted.
If you want you can serve shredded lettuce on top.
