Pedro's Special

Fun Food Friday!  Friday night dinners are
just meant to be casual and more fun.
  Pizza and tacos come to mind. This recipe is very 
easy for a Friday Fun Food night. It's another 
Peg Bracken  recipe from her popular and 
funny 1960 The I Hate To Cook book
Imagine a recipe that's 55 years old!
 Gather all ingredients
 Brown the beef with the onion and garlic.
 Add the tomato sauce. Rinse out Fill the can 
with about 1/3 of water and rinse out to add.
 Add chili powder, oregano and beans including 
the liquid in the can.
 Add half the beef mixture to the bottom of
 a sprayed casserole.
 Top with half the corn chips.
 Top with remaining beef mixture.
 Top with remaining corn chips. Cover with foil.
Bake @350º for 35 minutes. Remove foil and
bake another 10 minutes.
Strew the shredded lettuce and chopped
 onion on top, for that Olde-Tyme Mexicali look. 
Pass additional toppings.
Very good with my Redneck (Beer) Margaritas.

  6. I made this tonight and it brought back many memories. My Mom relied heavily on the "I Hate to Cook Book" while I was growing up.
