Mexican Cheese Casserole*
Fried, sugared tortilla shells*
Mexican Cheese Casserole
1/2 to 1 lb. of hamburger*
Cream of chicken soup
1 small can of tomato sauce
1 small can of green chilies, chopped
8 to 16 oz. of cheese, grated*
12 corn tortillas
Fry hamburger in pan and drain. Add soup, tomato sauce and chilies.
In a casserole dish or baking pan layer tortillas shells, meat mixture and cheese. Bake at 300° for 30-45 minutes.
*This recipe is very flexible. You can adjust the hamburger and cheese to pretty much to what you have on hand. I use cheddar cheese but you can use Monterey Jack, Mexican mix or any combination you want.
Fried, Sugar Tortilla Shells
Cinnamon and sugar, (1 tsp. cinnamon to 1/2 cup sugar)
In a frying pan add about 1/2 inch of oil. When oil is hot, fry tortillas (I either cut or tear them in to halves or quarters).
When golden brown, remove from pan and lay on paper towels. Immediately sprinkle with cinnamon mixture on both sides.
