A few recipes we love. . .

So after some inspiration from a friend who posts great recipes on her blog I decided I have some great recipes I should share. Some I've just run across and some I've stolen. I've also been meaning to post several from Christmas that everyone begged for, so here they all are. . . .

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Place crushed tortilla chips in botton of casserole.
Brown ground meat and drain. Add Rotel and both cans of soup (don't drain anything). Add taco seasoning mix. Stir and heat through until bubbly (about 3 minutes). Pour mixture over crushed tortilla chips.
Cover with cheese and bake for 10 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly delicious!
