Te-Mex Chili Tortilla Bake

Being born and raised in Texas, I love Tex-Mex. Being a working Mom, I loved One Pot Wonders. When I can combine the both, its a dream come true. My husband and two boys loved this casserole. It is a great one for pot-lucks because it is unexpected.

Use a potato masher to break up meat. Place baking dish on a cookie sheet in case of drippings.
