Found this recipe idea at Allrecipes yesterday and decided to give it a try last night. Made a couple of changes to the original recipe by using a smaller casserole dish (which slightly increased the baking time), lightly stuffed the chilies with cheese instead of layering them empty in the baking dish and spiced up the plain tomato sauce. I live alone so there are plenty of leftovers for today and tomorrow and since I am drooling for the taste again this morning, I am off to reheat some for breakfast with a cup of coffee ;-)

Ingredients:

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and oil an 8 x 8 inch baking dish.

Gently spoon in about a teaspoon or more of the Jack cheese inside of each chili and evenly layer half of the stuffed chilies into the bottom of the baking dish. Sprinkle with half of the remaining Jack and half of the Cheddar and cover with remaining chilies.

Mix together the eggs, milk and flour in a bowl, pour over the top of the chilies and bake for 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, mix tomato sauce, garlic, onion, chili powder, pepper, salt, and salsa in a bowl and set aside.

Remove chilies and cheese from oven, pour tomato mixture evenly over the top, sprinkle with the remaining cheese and continue baking another 15 to 20 minutes.

This can be done in 20 minutes and can be as hot as you like.

Total Time: 20

Yield: 4 hungry

Source: kraft.com with some changes

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb ground beef or turkey
  • 1 Package taco mix
  • 1 Can diced tomatoes
  • 1 Package mac n' cheese
  • 1 Can corn drained
  • 2 cups water

Steps:

  1. Brown and drain the meat.
  2. Add the undrained tomatoes, seasoning mix, water, pasta and packet from mac n' cheese and corn. Stir well.
  3. Cook covered on medium heat for 7-9 minutes. Stir 3-4 times.
  4. I like to serve with a little shredded cheese and a dollop of sour cream on top.

For more heat use Rotel tomatoes or a little hot sauce.
I don't have a lid for the pan I use so I an extra 1/2 cup of water.
For more tomato flavor use 1 cup of tomato juice for 1 cup of water.
If you reheat in the microwave you need to add a little water since the pasta will absorb most of the sauce.
If you have large chunks of tomatoes mash them with a potato masher in a bowl. The ones I buy are pretty big so I do this.
Fresh corn (is the best) or frozen corn works. I use 1 1/2 cups.
Ground pork worked as did ground chicken.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb or so ground beef
  • 1 package taco seasoning
  • 1 (12 oz) can refried beans
  • 1 (8 oz or to taste) can tomato sauce
  • 1 package flour tortillas
  • 1 1/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Brown ground beef with taco seasoning, refried beans, tomato sauce over medium heat for 5 min. Using 9 x 13 inch pan or smaller, place layer of flour tortillas on bottom of pan, top with meat mixture, then 1/3 cup cheese. Repeat the 3 layers 2-3 times.

Bake at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes. Let stand for a few minutes before serving. To make a prettier dish buy the Mission wraps from your local Walmart (or wherever you can get them). They come in red tomato and basil flour tortilla wraps. Stretch them out with the old fashioned white kind of wraps. They will love this dish and beg for more.
