Easy Casserole for Picky Eaters

My mom has made this Easy Mexican Style Casserole many times over the years for our family and we like it because it has a really good flavor, but not too many ingredients.  The original recipe calls for 2 tablespoons of pimento and 1/4 cup of chili sauce, but we always leave that out because we don’t like to live that wild here at our house!  When we find a recipe that kids will eat without complaining that’s what we make!  The ingredients listed below that we include in the recipe we pretty well always have on hand.

New Casserole Idea with Ground Beef

My family has always raised animals on our farm.  We love steaks and roasts, but there’s still a lot of good smaller pieces of meat that makes excellent ground beef.  We love hamburgers and casseroles to use the meat that we raise on our farm.  This casserole is delicious!  I had some taco flavored cheese that I added because it felt like a good day to add more cheese.  These are the types of dish that you use what you have on hand.

I love using my basic Pyrex baking dish with the lid.  Having the lid saves so much foil and plastic wrap and it stays put so much better!  Another benefit of a casserole dish with a lid is that you can stack other stuff on top of it in the refrigerator.  We love casseroles like this that we can easily reheat leftovers later in the week.
