I found this recipe online, and can’t remember what it was called. This was the first time I made it. When I cook, I choose recipes that don’t have very many ingredients. I just hate to buy ingredients that I might not use again and have to throw them out.
1 pound ground beef
1 can (15 oz) chili beans
1 can (8 oz) tomato sauce
2 tablespoons taco sauce (I used mild Pace Picante sauce)
4 teaspoons chili powder (I didn’t even use even 1 full teaspoon, as I can’t take it too spicy)
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder or salt
1 tomato, chopped
2 cups tortilla chips
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup sliced green onions with tops
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
Cook beef and drain. Stir in beans, tomato sauce, taco sauce, chili powder and garlic powder. Heat to boiling. Place chips in ungreased 12x8x2-inch baking dish. Top with beef mixture. Spread with sour cream. Sprinkle with onions, tomatoes and cheese.
Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes or until hot. Arrange additional tortilla chips around edge of casserole. Serve with shredded lettuce, chili peppers, and taco sauce, if desired. (I skipped that step entirely.)
Time: 30 minutes
This is what it looked like out of the oven:
It was very tasty. I had a salad with it. I can eat on this for four days most likely. So I can get going decorating without stopping to fix a meal from scratch!
