Another Recipe to Try!

I love easy and inexpensive meals to feed my family. I pulled this one out of my recipe box (it's from the early 1980s) and made it for the first time in years. We had a box of taco shells that had gotten broken and I remembered this casserole. I used to make it a lot when my kids were little because it was easy, didn’t cost much and was very tasty. I’m sharing it here in case any of you would like to try it too!

Festive Tostada Bake

1-1/2 pounds ground beef or ground turkey
1/2 cup diced green pepper
1/2 cup diced onion
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon oregano
15 oz can hot chili beans
1 cup tortilla chips (or taco shells), slightly crushed
1 cup sour cream
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Heat oven to 350°.

Brown beef with pepper and onion. Drain well, then add seasonings.

Place in shallow casserole dish (13”x 9”). Spoon beans over meat, then spread chips over beans evenly.

Spread sour cream on top, sprinkle with cheese.

Bake 15-20 minutes.
