Oh, look! I'm blogging!

Okay, this is a little wierd, but I just thought this might be fun. Everytime I cook anything and take it somewhere, someone asks me for the recipe but I never get it to them. So, I thought I'd try this. Now whenever some one asks I can just post it here. It might be fun. Here's my first one you might like:

Black Bean and Corn Casserole

1 pound hamburger
1/2 cup frozen chopped onions
1 can black beans, drained
10 oz. frozen corn
2 packages taco seasoning mix
3/4 cup salsa
3 cups crushed tortilla chips
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

on the side:
shredded lettuce, chopped tomato, sour cream, extra chips, salsa

Preheat oven 375 degrees. Brown hamburger and onion in large skillet. Drain grease. Add black beans and corn and stir until warm. Add salsa, taco seasoning, a cup and a half of water, and salsa. Simmer 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, place crushed chips in the bottom of a 9 x 13 baking dish. When the hamburger mixture has cooked down (has less liquid) pour into baking dish and top with cheese. Bake for 20 - 25 minutes or until cheese has melted and the casserole is bubbly around the edges. Serve with lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream, salsa, and extra chips.

Hope you like that one. It's a quicky, but it's yummy and an easy one to throw together. Something that might make it a dish you can always have ready to throw together is to keep a zip-lock bag in the freezer with the hamburger already browned with the onions in it. (2 3/4 cup of browned hamburger is a pound.)

Stay tuned for more! If there is a recipe you have asked me for in the past, let me know and I'll post it!
