Fiesta Casserole

A favorite in the Larsen house is something called Fiesta Casserole - a funny little recipe I found on the back of a Krusteaz baking mix box many years ago. It's always a hit at potlucks, and it's the perfect meal when it's been as cold and rainy as it has been here.

Fiesta Casserole

1 lb. ground beef or turkey
1 cup onion, chopped finely
1/2 green pepper, chopped finely
1/2 cup prepared chili sauce (on the same aisle with the ketchup)
Salt and Pepper
1/4 cup chopped green chilies
1 cup Krusteaz or Bisquick Baking Mix (not the pancake mix - the Baking Mix)
1 cup non-fat milk
3 eggs
1-2 cups shredded cheddar

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

2. Brown meat and drain. Add onion, green pepper and chili sauce. Cook until tender.

3. Remove from heat and add salt and pepper to taste and green chiles.

4. In a medium bowl, mix Krusteaz, milk and eggs. Spray an 8X8X2 baking pan with Pam or other spray. Pour half the batter into pan.

5. Add meat mixture and distribute evenly. Pour remaining batter over meat.

6. Top with cheese. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.

7. Serve with sour cream, salsa and guacamole.
