Tortilla Hamburger CasseroleBy Lark Harrington

Fall time makes me want to make warm bread, hot soup, and of course casseroles!

This is a very flavorful, filling dish! If your children aren’t too fond of onions or the green chilis, you can omit them. However, I think they are what make this casserole amazing.


1 1/2 pound lean hamburger
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup white onion, diced
1 (4 ounce) can diced green
1 cup sour cream
1(10.5 ounce) can cream of
chicken soup
8 corn tortillas
2 cups shredded Mexican blend


  • Preheat Oven to 350.
  • Brown the hamburger with onion and seasoning. Drain off any excess grease.
  • Stir in the chilis, sour cream, and cream of chicken soup.
  • Simmer over low heat for five minutes. Take the tortillas, and line the bottom of the pan with four. I like to tear mine into pieces. However, you can overlap them if you wish to keep them whole. (You do NOT have to cook the tortillas in oil!)
  • Spread half of the meat mixture over the tortillas then top with half of the cheese.
  • Repeat another layer using up the remaining ingredients.
  • Bake uncovered for 40 to 45 minutes, until hot and bubbly.
  • Serve warm along with some refried beans and salsa.

*This is also a very freezer friendly meal.

A great family meal for sure!
