2 garlic cloves chopped
4 ounces taco sauce
3 ounces cream cheese

1. Brown beef with onion and garlic
2. Add seasoning mix, water, cream cheese, corn, olives and taco sauce.--let simmer for 4 minutes
3. Crush fritos
4. In an 8x12 casserole dish layer 1/2 the fritos, 1/2 the meat mixture, and 1/2 the cheese, repeat the layers.
5. Bake at 375 for 20-25 minutes
6. To serve you can top with lettuce, diced tomatoes, green onion, sour cream, or guacamole (like a warm taco salad).
