So far, I am keeping to all of my “New School Year” resolutions. Granted, school hasn’t technically started and it’s only been a few days. I have yet to try a new wine for the month (I still have time); however, I have tried a new recipe. I have absolutely no name for it. I’ve been calling it the Mexican casserole thingy. I pulled it off the internet and then added to it. Sadly, I’m not 100% sure where I pulled it from. I copy and pasted quite a few recipes last night and saved them to a document on my computer. Nonetheless, here is the recipe:
What You Will Need:
1 lb hamburger,
2 cups salsa,
1 can black beans (drained and rinsed),
1/4 cup Craft Zesty Italian dressing,
1 package of taco seasoning,
6 flour tortillas,
1 package of shredded cheese (2 cups),
1 can of corn,
tortilla chips (optional),
and a pinch of cayenne pepper to spice it up:)
*Preheat the over to 400 degrees.
*Brown hamburger in skillet and drain.
*Mix in salsa, black beans, Zesty Italian Dressing, taco seasoning, corn, and cayenne pepper.
*Arrange three tortillas along the bottom and side of a 13 x 9 pan.
*Cover the tortillas with half of the meat mixture.
*Then cover the meat mixture with a cup of cheese and sour cream.
Bake 40 minutes and Viola!
The recipe suggests placing tin foil over the casserole. I forgot to do that, but it turned out perfectly! Ken and I also spread crushed tortilla chips over the top. It was delicious! I have a weakness for Mexican food and I’ve made similar casseroles before and this has been the best so far.
