Mexican Casserole

Mexican Casserole

A Taste of Heaven
Resurrection Council of Catholic Women

This is the local church cookbook that belonged to my aunt. I had discovered it several years after she had passed away. She had presented all the women in our family one of these cookbooks as a gift for Christmas. Almost 15 years after this book was originally published, this is coincidentally where my son attends first grade. Aww, how sweet.
As I mentioned before I'm always looking new ways to spice up Taco Tuesday. On a busy night, I prefer making casseroles because I'm able to stick it in the oven for about 45 to 50 minutes and try to do something useful.
The recipe is a little vague yet simple. I used three cloves minced garlic and one large onion, chopped and approximately four soft tortillas. I was not able to find the enchilada seasoning, so I accommodated by using 3 tablespoons taco seasoning which worked perfectly.

1 1/2 pound lean ground beef, browned
1 large onion
soft tortilla
1 (15 ounce) can tomato sauce
1 package enchilada seasoning
1 pound shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 pound shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1 can chili beans

 Mix seasoning with tomato sauce. Sauté garlic and onion, add to brown the hamburger. Spread small amount of sauce and bottom of 9 x 13 pan. Layer tortillas, beans, hamburger, cheeses and sauce. Repeat, ending with cheese and little sauce. Bake covered at 350° for 40 to 60 minutes.
