Green Chile Casserole

This is one of my "go to" recipes when I can't come up with something for dinner.  It is quick, easy, and with a salad, is a complete meal in one dish.  All of that and it tastes great too!

Ingredients pictured above.

1 1/2 lbs. ground beef
1 can evaporated milk
2 cans Cream of Chicken soup
2 small cans of Hatch Fire Roasted Green Chiles (I used one hot and one mild)
Corn Tortillas
Minced onions
Spicy Montreal Steak seasoning
Kosher Salt
2 cups Grated Cheddar Cheese

Brown the ground beef and add Montreal Seasoning, Kosher Salt, and minced onions to the meat as it browns.  In a separate bowl, combine the 2 cans of soup, evaporated milk, and green chiles.

Cut tortillas into 4 strips.  It took about 10 tortillas for this size casserole.

To put together:  Layer one layer of tortillas on bottom of a 9 x 13 dish or a 3 quart deep dish.  Layer about 1/3 of the hamburger over the tortillas; then 1/3 of the soup/green chile mixture over the meat.  You can spread grated cheese between the layers if you would like.  I did not in this casserole.  The picture below shows what the layers look like in the dish.

 To finish:  The final layer should be tortillas, meat, soup/green chile mix.  Top with the grated cheddar cheese.  See below.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 20-30 minutes.  You want the cheese to be melted and bubbling but not burned.  Serve with a tossed salad and chips.  Enjoy!
