Olive oil for frying
3 garlic cloves, minced
½ cup onion, minced
2 cups salsa
½ packet Taco seasoning
½ cup water
1 (16 ounce) can black beans, drained

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
In a large skillet over medium high heat, sauté onion and garlic in olive oil for couple of minutes. Add ground beef and cook until no longer pink. Stir in taco seasoning, water and salsa, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes, or until liquid is absorbed. Stir in beans and corn, heat through.
Spray a 9×13 baking dish with cooking spray. Spread crushed tortilla chips in dish, and then spoon beef mixture over chips. Spread sour cream over beef, and sprinkle olives, green onion and tomato over the sour cream. Top with Cheddar cheese.

If you want your tortilla chips crunchy, place them at the top of the casserole and cover with only cheese.
