Easy Taco Bake

Today at lunch, I wanted a quick meal that would appeal to most of the people in the house (Thing One is not doing red meat).  She is getting turkey meat loaf later.  Now, my buddies have been pinning several different recipes for taco casseroles, including one using Doritos.  Since I didn't want a trip to the grocery store, I decided to just go with what I have, and it turned out wonderfully.

1 lb. Ground beef
diced onion
garlic powder
packet of taco mix
Jar of chunky veggie salsa
1 cup sour cream
1 cup cottage cheese
Marxian blend of shredded cheese
Nacho chips

Preheat oven to 400 and brown meat with the onion, salt/pepper, garlic powder.
Drain grease except for 1 tbs.
Mix in the taco mix and salsa and heat
Crunch a lawyer of nachos into a casserole dish (sprayed with Pam)
Mix sour cream and cottage cheeses
Pour meat over chip and then spread the sour cream/cottage cheese
Put down a layer of cheese
Another layer of chip

Bake for 30 minutes or until the cheese is melted.
