15 Min


35 Min


1 lb
1 small
onion, chopped
1 clove
garlic, minced
1 tsp
chili powder (more if you wish we like mild)
1 can(s)
sweet whole kernel corn (or other favorite veggie)
1 can(s)
(9 oz) fritos mild cheddar cheese (in the isle with potato chips)
2-3 c
mash potatoes or leftover potato casserole or any potato like french fries would do

Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Saute hamburger, onion and garlic in a fry pan until meat is cooked, adding chili powder about half way through.

Remove from heat, drain.
Put drained meat mixture in a oblong baking dish top with drained corn, then top with the cheese sauce ploping it by spoonfuls and the smoothing it out. Top with what ever potato you wish and put in the oven at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes until you hear it bubbling
Note: I used leftover potato-broccoli casserole and sliced it a inch thick and added it to top of casserole in place of mashed potatoes. I also topped with fresh ground peppercorns
