Mexican Casserole Relish (Karen Holley)
1 lb Ground Beef
1/2 Chopped Onion
1/2 tsp Garlic Salt or Powder
16 oz Tomato Sauce
1 cup Sour Cream
1 cup Cottage Cheese
1 can of Diced Green Chilies (4 oz)
1 cup Grated Jack Cheese
6 1/2 oz or more Tortilla Chips
Mix ground beef, onion and garlic salt or powder and brown. Add tomato sauce and simmer 5 minutes. In a bowl mix together the sour cream, cottage cheese and the diced chilies.
Butter a casserole dish and place chips on the bottom (I kind of smash them a bit.). Then add a layer of the meat sauce and a layer of the sour cream mixture (I usually throw in some of the grated jack cheese at each layer thus I use more than one cup per recipe). Then a layer of chips and continue until all ingredients are used. Make sure that the top layer is chips with cheese on top.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes.
