What's Cooking Now That Fall's Here

Don't you love seasonal cooking?

Summertime means fresh fruits

Fresh veggies


And fresh flowers from the yard  to put on the table

But when Fall rolls around, I start thinking about big pots of soups, stews, chili, spaghetti and

Made Up Mexican Casserole

which is what I'm fixing for tonight's supper.

and it's so easy!

I brown 2 lbs. of ground beef along with some chopped onion

when the ground beef has browned, drain it.

Stir in a package of Taco Seasoning and follow the directions of the back of the package.

After I've done this, I toss in some peppers - whatever's on hand - jalapenos, whatever, then toss in a can of Rotel.

After I've seasoned the meat, I let it cool for a little bit, then spoon the meat into flour tortillas - usually six of them - and place seam side down in a casserole dish.

Whatever seasoned ground beef I have left, I pour over the filled tortillas.

Pour a can of enchillada sauce over the tortillas and top with shredded cheese.

I use a Mexican Cheese mixture and then some extra sharp cheddar.  How much?  As much as you want!

Bake at 350 until it's bubbly around the edges and the cheese has started browning.

Serve topped with whatever you want - Salsa, onions, lettuce, guacamole, sour cream, etc. etc. etc.
