My Recipe Book is half empty. I make a new recipe and we as a family collectively decide whether or not it is worth having again. This goes for all foods, desserts, main courses, veggies, sides, snacks, etc. Obviously being a family for almost 20 years has made it interesting and hard to come up with something we all like. So here is today's recipe.
Spicy Nacho Bake
I got this out of Taste of Home August-September, 2007.
1 lb. ground beef
1 large onion, chopped
1 large green pepper, chopped
1 28-oz. can of diced tomatoes, drained
1 15-oz. can chili beans
1 11-oz. can whole kernel corn
1 8-oz. can tomato sauce
1 envelope taco seasoning
1 package of doritos
2 cups of cheese (your choice)
Brown the beef, onion and green pepper over medium heat until the meat is no longer pink; drain. (I wash my meat. Meaning I put it in a strainer and rinse it under hot water until the grease is gone.) Stir in the tomatoes, beans, corn, tomatot sauce and the taco seasoning. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat; simmer, uncovered for 30 minutes.
In a 13X9 baking dish, layer doritos and half the meat mixture. Repeat. Top with cheese. Bake, uncovered at 350 degrees for 20 - 25 minutes or until golden brown.
Serve with sour cream, spanish rice and it's a whole meal!
To make this quicker, I brown the meat mixture before hand and freeze. Then just pull out, throw together and bake. It's really yummy.
Have a great Thursday!
