Ingredients

2 c
chicken broth
1/4 c
all purpose flour
1 pkg
(1.25 ounces) taco spices & seasonings
1 lb
lean ground beef
1 c
sour cream
1 can(s)
(7 oz) diced green chiles
1 pkg
( 11 oz) corn or tortilla chips
2 c
(8 oz) grated monterey jack or cheddar cheese
1 c
sliced green onions with tops

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Gather your ingredients:
2
In a medium skillet, brown the meat and stir till crumbly. Drain the fat.

Add the taco spices, blend well.
3
In a small bowl, combine the broth and flour.

Add to the meat mixture; bring to a boil to slightly thicken liquid. Stir in sour cream and chiles; blend well.
4
In 13 x 9 x 2 inch lightly greased baking dish, place half of the chips. Top with 1/2 of the beef mixture, 1/2 of the cheese, and half of the green onions.

Layer again, ending with the green onions.
5
Bake uncovered, in a 375 degree oven for 25-30 minutes.

Let stand 5 minutes before cutting.

When I make a double batch of this, it works nicely in an aluminum, throw away roaster.

If you make this for a party, I would suggest you double the batch; you won't have any left..Seriously! And naturally you would bake it longer. I baked mine until the cheese is golden brown..


Serve with a dollop of sour cream and salsa.

I wanted to update this with the chicken version I made tonight.Instead of ground beef, I coarsely ground 1 pound of chicken breasts in my food processor. I also was out of green onions, so I chopped about 1/2 cup of onions and browned in with the chicken...I topped it with red jalapeno slices..So the illustrated pics that you see are for the chicken version...
