Enchilada Casserole

I created a new dish last evening for dinner.

1 Large can enchilada sauce

1 Bag tortilla chips, slightly crushed

1lb. Ground beef

1 small onion, diced

1 clove garlic, diced

1 Jalepeno pepper, diced

1 cup Taco Cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 13×9 baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. Brown ground beef, onion, pepper, and garlic. Lay tortilla chips in bottom of baking dish. Spread half of sauce over chips. Cover with ground beef mixture. Spread on remaining sauce. Cover with cheese. Bake for 20 minutes, or until cheese is melted.

Serve with sour cream, refried beans, black olives, and lettuce.

I thought I’d share what we’re using this year. I’m pretty happy with it, although I would like to add art & music.

I think we’re really going to enjoy both our history and science programs this year. I haven’t yet found one that I really liked, but these are looking very promising.

This is also where we get our math programs.
