Share a Spoon: Tex-Mex Roll Ups

Thursday, July 1, 2010

Think Tank Momma

Happy Thursday Smackers!
It's Share a Spoon....CASSEROLES!

Today's theme comes to us compliments of my buddy Cheesecake, also known as Tamara over at Mad Boastings of a Cheapskate Mom.  This is her SaS week and she went and took a bloggy Unvacation.  (basically, she prescheduled all her posts this week so she would stay off the 'puter and do stuff with the kiddos.  She is a rock star mom like that.)  However, when I gave her a guilt trip told her it was her theme, she graciously offered up a recipe for the LIB site where she is a contributor.  She also gave us a SUPER FABBY makeover cause she had mad skills.

So...confession.  I am a complete slacker unprepared this week.  I had every intention of going to the store for the ingredients for this week's recipe and taking pictures for you.  Instead, I ordered Chinese food and fell asleep early after staying up two nights in a row.  Monday night I just couldn't sleep (insomniac remember?).  Tuesday night, Momma was drooling at the site of the wolf at Kamden's Twilight Eclipse Premiere party!  Oh my!  *swoon*

I have however put together an ingredient collage to help you get over my slacker ways get the idea.

Here's what you'll need:
1.5 pounds ground beef
One large onion diced
salt and pepper
One package taco seasoning

One can of diced green chiles
One small can (8 oz) tomato sauce
One jar of salsa (medium)
Two cans of Hormel Chili w/beans
10 Large Flour tortillas
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray a large casserole dish with cooking spray.

In a large skillet or frying pan, brown the ground beef, season with salt and pepper.  Add the diced onions, diced green chiles, and taco seasoning.  Cook until onions are softened.  Stir in the cans of chili.  Remove from heat.

In a bowl combine the tomato sauce and salsa.  (You can substitute the salsa with Rotelle if you prefer here.)

Take the flour tortillas and fill middle with meat/chili mixure.  Roll and add to prepared casserole dish.  Once all tortillas are in the casserole dish, pour salsa/tomato sauce over them and top with shredded cheese.  Bake for 30 minutes.

We serve this topped with a bit of sour cream.

(Cook's note:  If you don't like heat, leave the chiles out and substitute mild salsa for the for the medium.  If you like more heat, add a jalapeno to the meat/chili mixture.)

This is a crowd pleaser, and I am pretty sure that BDC fell in love with me because I made him this casserole the first time I took him dinner.  I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Now, leave me some love and let me know what your Share a Spoon week wish is.  You don't have to participate, but I will give you a shout out on Sat and Thursday of your week!  You just let me know what recipes you want to see.  Chicken, appetizers, side dishes, more desserts, cookies, pies, salads....what???

Yay! I'm the first one lol! Sorry I'm JUST participating in this one girl! I've been so out of it lately! This is a really good idea! Do you send out an email in advance to let everyone know what the theme of the week is going to be?

Dee said...

Ooops! I forgot to leave my "wish!" I'd like to see some appetizers!

Powdered Toast Man said...

That sounds delectable but I would throw some Monterey Jack on there too. I want to see a tasty cannoli recipe

The Princess of Sarcasm said...

I could live off appetizers. Mmmmmmmmm...

I thought a Tex Mex rollup was when a guy from Austin hooked up with an illegal senorita.

My bad.

FourJedis said...

I'll definitely have to try this out! Thanks!

Andrea said...

I was actually planning to post a "recipe" today, but it's not meshing with your Share a Spoon theme... Ever do Crockpot/Slow Cooker recipes? Mmmmn. ;)

Buffee said...

I love this recipe! Yum-O!

I was thinking dips for the next SAS, but appetizers will work!

Lee said...

If I cooked, I would totally make this recipe.

rachaelgking said...

Oh, chili, YES! The only thing better than meat is meat I can drink.

SurferWife said...

Ohh, this one sounds damn good. Too bad my kid doesn't like onions or chiles or anything like that. Without it, it just wouldn't be the same.

What would I like to see? Hmm. How about your favorite Italian pasta dish?

Nancy C said...

How about cocktails some week? I can get behind that for sure.

This recipe looks awesome, BTW.

Lothiriel said...

I love it when something is sooo freaking good and easy to make!!!

I'm definitely trying this!!!

Macey said...

I'm printing this one off. I was just at the store yesterday but I'm going back! YUM!

Tracie said...

This sounds delicious!

KristinFilut said...

Ahhh, more Mexi-style meals to add to my bag o' menu tricks! Thanks baby!

Claudya Martinez said...

I have been having a crappy week. Can you come over and make me some Tex Mex roll-ups? No. Oh well, I'll just make them myself and pretend that they came from you.

Ally said...

Anything with the words Tex Mex and roll-up make me hungry! That sounds awesome. I love them at Taco Bell! Enjoy your holiday weekend!

Ooooh, I would substitute ground turkey for this and have a total crowd pleaser! thanks! yum!
