Today I'm sharing a recipe for Recipe Monday which Colleen hosts at her blog. Hop on over to Colleen's blog to see more recipes. Today, she has also shared a special story and prayer request. Please check it out.
Here's my recipe, for Tamale Casserole. It's a crock pot recipe and oh so easy. I used mild green chili peppers in mine. Choose hot ones if you prefer. I think I'll add at least 1/2 a can more peppers next time, since I love the flavor. I do like the heat of peppers, but I try to keep things mild for Jadyn's sake.
If you enjoy the flavor of tamales, you will like this easy casserole.
1 pound lean ground beef
1 cup chopped onion
1 can (14.5 oz.) diced tomatoes, drained
1 can (4 oz.) diced green chilies
8 (6-inch) soft corn tortillas
2 cups Cheddar cheese, shredded
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
Brown the ground beef and onion; drain. Add the tomatoes, green chilies, salt, and spices. Heat through.
Spray crock pot with cooking spray.
Tear 4 of the tortillas into bite-size pieces and place in a crock pot. Add half of the meat mixture, then sprinkle with half the cheese. Repeat layers, ending with cheese. Cover and cook on LOW for 2 to 2 1/2 hours, or until heated through. Makes 5-6 servings.
