Dinner the whole family ate!

It seems like there are few meals that everyone will eat willingly. I made Mexican Tortilla Casserole the other day and the kids both ate it up. Ruthanne wasn't a big fan of the ground beef on top, but she scraped her leftover meat onto John's plate and he ate it! He thought it was sloppy joes. Here's the recipe:

Mexican Tortilla Casserole

1 lb of ground beef or turkey
some chopped onion of you want
16 oz of tomato sauce
8 oz of cream cheese (light is fine)
12 tortillas
1.5 cups of grated cheese
2 tsp taco seasoning (to taste)

Cook ground beef with onion until brown. Drain beef. Add in tomato sauce and taco seasoning.
Meanwhile, spread a thin layer of cream cheese over each tortilla and then roll very tightly and put into a 9x13 casserole. Put the ground beef mixture on top and then top with grated cheese. Bake in a 375 oven for about 25 minutes, or until bubbling and cheese is nice and melty!

That sounds so simple and easy. Might have to give that one a try! Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Is this the one you made when we were in school? Or a similar one? It seems like the one you made then we cut the tortillas in little pieces. I was just thinking of that over the weekend and meaning to e-mail you for the recipe!! Thanks! Either way, we will try this one.

Amanda, this is a similar one. We make both! I'll post the other since it is a family favorite too!
