April/May WC recipe Exchange

I opted to participate in this go around in the Nest Cooking message Board "What's for Dinner" recipe exchange. Amy so kindly organized this event. I was emailed Mamacita's Hombre's. Overall a very easy mexican type dish. I made just a couple of little changes for taste (the guys can't stand any kind of mushroom). It was pretty good and worked for a quick meal after the gym.

Mamacita's Hombre's

1 lb Hamburger
1 pkg taco seasoning
1/4 c chopped onion
1 8oz sour cream
1 can cream of mushroom soup (I used cream of celery)
1 small can green chilies or jalapeƱos if you want it spicy
LOTS of grated cheese of your choice-at least 4 cups
Soft Taco Shells (or tortillas if you want them bigger) **I used whole wheat tortillas

Preheat oven to 350. Saute onions till soft and set aside. Brown hamburger meat and drain fat. Add onions seasoning mix and waster according to the directions on the package, simmer. Fill soft taco/tortilla shells with meat mixture and top with cheese. Roll into a burrito and place in a baking dish (you may want to insert a toothpick to keep them together if needed). Place pan in oven for 15 minutes. while they are in the oven mix sour cream, cream of mushrooms soup and chilies/jalapeƱos. After removing the pan, cover shells with mixture and remaining cheese (the more cheese the better) Bake until scheese is melted (approx 20-30 min).
