Evelyn Brandon – For The Record

In my opinion, one dish meals are the greatest things ever thought of since sliced bread. They are great for working women, single people and for cook and freeze meals. I love to take this to potluck dinners at church, and when my family says they are hungry for something “savory”, this is one of the first things that comes to mind.  Try it, you’ll like it.

Enchilada Bake

4 ounces cream cheese, softened

2 eggs

1/2 teaspoon taco seasoning

8 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded

1/4 ounce tortilla chips, crushed (5-8 chips)

Beat cream cheese and eggs until smooth. Add seasoning and mix well. Stir in cheese and crushed chips, mix well.

Pour mixture into a greased 9×13 baking dish and bake at 350 for 35 minutes (Don’t allow to get too dark). Let stand 5-10 minutes before adding topping.

Topping

1 pound ground beef

1 Tablespoon taco seasoning

1/2 – 1 cup red enchilada sauce

8 ounces Mexican cheese, shredded

Brown hamburger meat, stir in seasoning and sauce – spread over crust, top with cheese. Bake 20 minutes or until hot and bubbly.

*I sautee and add a little chopped onion and minced garlic, and cumin to the hamburger meat when cooking. 

Bon appétit!
