Tried and True: Diane Brown's creation
News-Gazette reader Diane Brown, an Urbana resident, incorporated some ingredients and her kids loved it. The result? Diane's Creation, a concoction of ground beef, cheese, tomato sauce and tortilla chips. It's versatile, too, Brown said.
"For people who don't eat meat, they can just make the recipe with the cheese listed in the ingredients," she said.
2 pounds hamburger
2 big bags shredded cheese, any kind
4 14-ounce cans of tomato sauce
2 big bags of white tortilla chips, crumbled into small pieces
Brown hamburger meat, then drain. Put a little tomato sauce in the bottom of a 11-by-13-inch pan. Then put some hamburger meat on top of that. Put some crumbled chips on top of that. Then put some cheese on top of the chips. Continue layering until you fill the plan. Make sure your top layer is cheese.
Bake at 350 degrees for about half an hour or until the cheese is melted.
