A Farmchick Favorite

Firecracker Casserole

This casserole is a family
favorite in Farmchick's kitchen.
Not only that, it is also very
quick and easy to make. As we
begin our long days of
field work and spring planting
I try to make things that
go together quickly and
that can be reheated
and still taste great.
Just put all the ingredients
together and pop it in the oven!
What do I need to make
2 pounds ground beef (extra lean)
1 medium onion, chopped
1 can refried beans (I use fat free)
1 to 2 tablespoons chili powder
2 to 3 teaspoons ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 flour tortillas (6 inches) Cut into bite size pieces
1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cream of mushroom soup, undiluted (I use fat free)
1 can (10 ounces) diced tomatoes and green chilies, undrained
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese (I use reduced fat)
black olives (optional)
Directions: In a skillet, cook the beef and onion until the meat is no longer pink; drain.
Add beans, chili powder, cumin and salt.
Transfer to a greased 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking dish.

Cut tortillas and arrange tortillas over the top.

Combine soup and tomatoes; spoon over the tortillas.

Sprinkle with cheese and olives.

Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until heated through.
That's it!! Simple and delicious!!
This dish is easily transported
to the field so that your
hungry farmers can
have an enjoyable supper.
As we begin spring
planting I pray for
some moisture here
as it is very dry.
I would rather have
rain but will gladly
take snow!!!!
I hope you enjoy this
casserole. Remember:
I love your comments
so keep them coming!

This looks so good...I have a question...would I be able to sneak it past my husband who would die if I told him it had beans in it? ;0)

My mouth is watering...I want to make this so badly, but I can't eat the whole thing myself!
