Prep Time: 15 Min COOK TIME: 45 MIN
Preheat oven. Preheat oven to 350F. In a skillet over medium high heat brown the ground beef and onions with a little bit of olive oil.
Drain grease. Drain the grease from the cooked meat. Add the chili powder, cumin, and salt to the meat mixture along with 1/2 c water. Bring liquid to a boil then reduce to a simmer and continue to cook for 5- 6 minutes or until it has thickened.
Mix ingredients. In a large bowl add ground beef mixture, noodles, black beans, corn, salsa, sour cream and 2 cups of cheese. Mix thoroughly.
Bake. Add the mixture to a greased 13x 9 casserole dish and cover with foil. Bake for 30 minutes covered, then uncover and add the remaining cheese (more or less depending on how cheesy you want it). Then continue to bake for 15 minutes uncovered.
