There has to be some Mexican blood running through my veins. I love Mexican food. Tonight I fixed one of my all time favorites – beef enchilada casserole. This is something I made a lot when I had 5 kids at home and 4 of them were teenagers. It went a long way toward filling up their hollow legs and it is YUMMY!
brown 1 pound ground beef, 1/2 diced onion and 1/2 bell pepper in skillet. Drain and add:
1 can refried beans;1 can cream of mushroom soup and 1 can enchilada sauce. Cook over medium heat until warm.
In 9 X 11 pan layer the following:
corn chips, meat mixture, shredded cheddar cheese. You should have enough of the meat mixture for two layers. I love cheese so I make a heavy topping. 8 – 10 ounces of shredded cheese should be enough.
Cook in preheated 350 degree oven for 20-30 minutes. Cheese will be bubbly and brown. OMG it is good!
Tonight I served this with Spanish Rice and my homemade Pico. Fresh green salad is best, but wtf.
