new casserole for supper

Make Something Monday

At our house we have all decided to cut back and eat healthy. Now having 6 teens that is a bit hard to do for them to go without all the things they are used to. Tonight I created a new casserole that was healthy for them but was a bit of what they loved. I made my healthy frito pie

1 lb hamburger (on sale this week 1.45)
1/2 onion, chopped (.17)
shredded cheese (1.50)
2 can tomato sauce (.50)
1 can chilli (.79)
1 can chilli beans (.59)

Browned first 2 Mixed last 3 and seasoning placed in casserole. Placed a thin layer cornchips in a 9x13 pan and layered the mix of veggies and meat over chips. I then placed cheese over that and topped with crushed chips. Now it may not seem healthy to you but in the past would have probably about 3 cans of chilli and 2 bags of chips with about 3 lbs hamburger. To make this and them be like it and not complain really made me feel good
