Description

i came up with this while cleaning the pantry! Quick, easy, and made with on-hand items make this dish a weeknight favorite. Plus, it’s colored with specks of red and green, hence the name!

Ingredients

  • 1-½ pound Ground Beef
  • 2 teaspoons Chili Powder
  • 2 teaspoons Dried Parsley
  • 1-½ teaspoon Cumin
  • 1 teaspoon Paprika
  • 1 teaspoon Onion Salt
  • ½ teaspoons Oregano
  • ½ teaspoons Garlic Powder
  • ¾ cups Water
  • 1 can Diced Tomatoes (15 Oz.)
  • 1 whole Green Bell Pepper, Diced
  • 3 cups Tortilla Chips
  • 1 cup Shredded Colby-jack Cheese
  • ½ cups Fresh Salsa

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350F. Cook ground beef until no longer pink. Drain fat. Add seasonings and water. Simmer for 5 minutes. Then add tomatoes and green pepper. Simmer an additional 5 minutes. In a greased 3.5 quart casserole dish, layer 1/2 of the tortilla chips, 1/2 of the meat mixture, 1/2 of the cheese. Repeat layers and dot the top with salsa. Bake for 20 minutes. Enjoy!

It looks like a lot of ingredients, but it is because I chose to make my own taco seasoning. You may use a store-bought package if you choose. I just find this to be much healthier and tastier too!

sounds yummy! Something I will try (I like the idea of making your own taco seasoning, something I do too, the packaged stuff is loaded with salt and MSG!)
