Another wonderful recipe from the Gooseberry Patch Fast Fix Meals.
I love that the recipes in these cookbooks are all easy, delicious, filling meals. I don't think I've found one recipe that I haven't enjoyed.
Now, for this one I made tonight. It comes together really quick, it uses ingredients that we all like and the result is a creamy yummy dish. I think you'll enjoy this meal. :)
Teeny's Mexican Casserole
Ellen Mattingly, Flagstaff, AZ
1 to 1 and half lbs ground beef (I used Turkey)
1/2 cup. onion, chopped
4 oz can chopped green chiles
3/4 t. salt-free herb seasoning
3/4 t. garlic powderr
3/4 t. ground cumin
3/4 t. paprika
salt and pepper to taste
12 6-inch corn tortillas, torn into bite size pieces (I used flour tortillas, didn't have corn)
10 3/4 oz can cream of celery or mushroom (I used mushroom)
1/4 c. milk
12 oz pkg. shredded sharp or mild Cheddar cheese, divided
Cook ground beef and onion in a skillet until beef is browned and onion is tender. Drain; stir in chiles and seasonings. Place tortilla pieces in a large bowl; add soup, milk and 2 cups cheese.
Spoon warm meat mixture over tortillas. Mix all very well and place in a greased 11 x 7 inch baking pan; top with remaining cheese. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes, until bubbly and golden on top.
Serves 4 to 6.
