Jean's Mexican Hot Dish

You're all invited to visit Magical Musings where I'm guest blogging today! Come on over!

In the meantime, this recipe was sent to me by Donna, and, trust me, it's a good one!


Jean’s Mexican Hot Dish
9x13 pan – 350 degree oven – 45 minutes bake time
2 lbs. ground beef
½ cup chopped onions
2 cloves minced garlic
1 8 oz. can tomato sauce
1 28 oz. can diced tomatoes
1 2 ½ oz jar chopped black olives
1 pack taco seasoning
1 15 oz. pkg. cheese taco chips (I used Nacho Cheese Doritos)
1 12 oz. pkg. shredded cheddar cheese
1 8 oz. pkg. shredded mozzarella cheese
½ pint sour cream
Brown meat with onions and garlic.
Add sauce, tomatoes, olives, and taco seasoning.
Crush ½ pkg. of taco chips into bottom of 9x13 pan.
Layer on 4 oz. cheddar cheese, meat mixture, then mozzarella cheese.
Spread sour cream across top.
Top this with remaining taco chips (optional: do not add remaining chips until about 30 minutes into baking time – then the chips will not be quite as crunchy).
Bake for 45 minutes.
Remove from oven and sprinkle on remaining cheddar cheese.
Serve to your friends & family.
*Optional: Sprinkle chopped green onions across top.
Also, this dish is relatively mild. If you want a little more heat, add cayenne or hot sauce to taste.

    We all need some extra spice in our lives. Whether it be my friend Jean's Mexican Hot Dish or One of Cheryl's Hot Yummy Aliens or one of her many Yummy Hunks.

  3. Yeah, that's the trouble with some of those sites. I don't subscribe to any of them anymore just so I won't be able to get beyond the freebies. That way they can't fuss at me for using their pics on my blog. The stuff on the promo pages is fair game!

  4. Let's kick it up a little, Donna!

  5. That's right!!!!

  6. I'm gonna ask him permission to post it on a site you can link to lol. He's a friend of mine and he's drooltastic.
