Number of Servings: 8


    1 lb ground beef
    1/2 cup onions
    1/2 cup sour cream
    1/2 cup cottage cheese
    1/2 bottle red chile sauce
    1/2 bag tortilla chips
    2 cups shredded Mexican blend cheese

    1 packet taco seasoning
    3/4 cups water


Typically I only have enough to make one layer of each, but I have a lot of the cheese sauce left over. If you are so inclined, use 2 lbs of ground beef to make 2 layers of meat, but keep the remaining ingredients the same.


Brown beef in pan; drain. Add onions and optional taco seasoning and water. Set aside.

Mix sour cream, cottage cheese, and red chile sauce together until blended. In 9x13 dish, crush a layer of tortilla chips to cover bottom. Take meat mixture and layer on top of chips. Add half cheese and chile sauce mixture on top of meat. Add layer of cheese then layer of chips and continue layering until dish is full.

Preheat oven to 350. Cover dish with aluminum foil and cook for 30 minutes. Remove aluminum foil and cook for another 30 minutes, or until cheese is melted and bubbly. Enjoy!

Serving Size: 9x13 dish makes 8 servings
