TJ's standard

Last week I took my mom up to the airport. It happened to be during the supper time that I had to go up and drop her off. So that means that TJ was home with the boys to fend for themselves at supper time. I suppose I could have been the over-acheiving wife and made supper earlier in the day for it to be ready and waiting, but for some reason, I was kinda behind in everything, and almost not ready when my mom got here to leave to take her up there. So that didn't happen.

TJ decided to make something for them all to eat, and it wasn't just sandwiches. Instead it was, what seems to be his standard meal when I am gone. Maybe because it is not my favorite, or maybe because I always forget about it, or maybe because it's super easy, and he Loves it! I don't know. It's something he grew up eating...not from his mom's, but from a friends of the family. When they'd go over after church for get-togethers this was a standard that he grew to love. :)

Spoon Taco

1 lb hamburger
2 cans hormel chili no beans
1 bag fritos
1 bag cheddar
lettuce, tomato, taco sauce, sour cream

Layer 9x13 pan with fritos. Mix hamburger and chili together. Top with cheese. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes. Just to warm it together and melt the cheese. Top with any taco ingredients.

Quick and easy. If TJ can make it, so can you. :)

That's funny. I usually proofread my stuff, but I missed the number on that one! Good one. It really wouldn't taste good if you baked it that long.

I do really like this recipe but I only make it if I have to cook for large crowd. Hmmm...maybe I'll make this the next time I host the college kids.

we loved this and did a few things differently.... We put refried beans in the bottom of each bowl, the meat/chili mixture on top, then toppings of cheese and veggies and finally the chips on top for added crunch. All cooked on the stove.

Thanks for another good one!
