Chili Casserole

This recipe is incredibly easy and tastes amazing. I had an extra pound of cooked hamburger, so I decided to throw this together tonight after seeing something similar to it in a cookbook I got from the library. It would work as a meal or as an appetizer dip at a party. 

1 pound hamburger
1 can chili beans with sauce
1 can enchillada sauce
about 1/2 bag of tortilla chips
4 oz shredded cheddar cheese
(If you want it spicy, you could add a chipotle pepper to the mixture.) 
Sour cream is good on top too. 

Brown the hamburger and drain the grease. Add the chili beans and enchillada sauce. 

Crush up about 1 cup of tortilla chips and stir in the mixture. 

Place a layer of tortilla chips in the bottom of 7x11inch greased baking pan. (Double the recipe if you want to use a 9x13 inch pan.) 

Dump the meat mixture over the tortilla chips. 

Top with a few more crushed chips and shredded cheddar cheese. 

Cover with tinfoil and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. 

Top with sour cream if you would like, but it tastes great plain as well.
