Easy Taco Casserole

(Lucy needed a job so I put her to work doing the dishes.)

Easy Taco Casserole
1 lb. ground beef ( I use ground turkey)
1 c. salsa
1/2 c. mayo
2t. chili powder
2c. crushed tortilla chips ( I never measure these)
1 c. shredded Colby cheese
1 c. Monterey Jack cheese ( I just used all cheddar tonight)
shredded lettuce

Brown beef, add salsa, mayo and chili powder (you can omit the powder), mix well.
In an ungreased 2 Qt. baking dish, layer half the meat mixture, chips, cheeses. Repeat layers.
Bake uncovered @ 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until heated through. Before serving, top with lettuce and tomato.

You really can't mess this up. I would double the recipe for a big family or company. I browned the turkey and then basically Ivy did the rest. Another fun way to teach my girls to love the kitchen.
