Meaty Supper

One of my favorite meals my Memom made growing up was a meat casserole that had layers of corn tortillas, cheese, and a meat mixture. I realized that I would pick out the meat mixture every time because it was so good.

Nowadays, I love making the meat mixture alone as a meal for my husband and me. We typically make nachos with it, eat it with tamales, or treat it like a dip. It is such an easy and versatile meal. You can always count on the leftovers being eaten too!


I promise it tastes much better than it looks!

Meaty Dip

  • 1 lb. ground meat
  • 1 T dried onion flakes
  • 1 clove garlic
  • ¼ tsp cumin
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 can cream of mushroom
  • 1 can of Rotel tomatoes
  • ½ can of water

Brown meat with garlic; drain. Add remaining ingredients. Let simmer for about 10-15 minutes until mixture thickens.

If you want to make the full casserole, fry corn tortillas. Layer half of the tortialls in a 9×13″ dish. Top with part of the meat mixture, cheese, and then add another layer. Top with cheese. Cover with foil. Bake at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes.

I hope you enjoy this meal as much as we do!
