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!
- 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!
