Santa Fe Casserole Bake

One my favorite recipe books is the Great American Favorite Brand Name Cookbook. Pages are falling out of this book due to its continued use. Santa Fe Casserole Bake is a family favorite.

1 pound lean ground beef
1 package (1.25 ounces) Lawry’s Taco seasoning
2 cups chicken broth
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1 cup dairy sour cream
1 can (7 ounces) diced green chilies
1 package (11 ounces) corn or tortilla chips
2 cups (8 ounces) grated cheese Monterrey Jack or cheddar
1/2 cup sliced green onions with tops

In medium skillet, brown meat and stir until crumbly; drain fat. Add Taco spices and seasonings; blend well.

In small bowl, combine broth and flour. Add to meat mixture; bring to a boil to slightly thicken liquid. Stir in sour cream and chilies; blend well.

In a 13x9x2″ lightly greased glass baking dish, place 1/2 of the chips. Top with 1/2 of beef mixture, 1/2 of the cheese and 1/2 of the green onions. Layer again with remaining ingredients ending with green onions.

Bake uncovered, in 375F. oven for 20 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before cutting.

Makes 6 servings.
