Heathers Corner

Heather emailed me this recipe last night. It sounds DELICIOUS! Can't wait to try it out!!

Nacho Cheese Beef Bake
Prep. Time 25 minutes Bake Time 15 minutes
Yield: 4 Servings

2 cups uncooked egg noodles
1 pound ground beef
1 can (14.5 ounces) diced tomatoes
1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed nacho cheese soup, undiluted
1 jar (5-3/4 ounces) sliced pimiento-stuffed olives, drained (optional)
1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chilies
1.5 cups (6 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
2 cups crushed tortilla chips (optional)
1/3 cup prepared ranch dressing (optional)
Shredded lettuce, sour cream and/or salsa (optional)

Cook noodles according to package directions; drain.

Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Stir in tomatoes, soup, olives and chilies. (I add some chili powder to the beef as well for a little extra flavoring. Without some sort of seasoning its a bit bland. Pepper would do wonders too!) Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered for 10 minutes. Stir in noodles.

Transfer everything to a 11-in. x 7-in. baking dish. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until heated through. Top with tortilla chips (optional), drizzle with salad dressing (optional). Serve with lettuce, sour cream and/or salsa if desired. 

I usually put a spoonful of sour cream and some salsa right on top and mix it all in! Yum!
