My Taco Hotdish

Brown 1 lb. hamburger with a chopped onion.
Drain and add:
2 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. salt
dash of pepper
½ cup water

Simmer about 10 minutes and add:
1 15 oz. can of refried beans
8 ozs. tomato sauce,
1 ½ cups of cooked rice (white or brown).
Mix and simmer for about 5 minutes.

Layer in a casserole dish:
1 ½ cups of crushed tortilla chips,
Hamburger mixture
1 ½ cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup crushed chips
sliced black olives
¾ cup cheddar

Bake at 400 for 20 minutes till warm.
Top with lettuce, tomato, picante sauce, sour cream.

Notes: If you use Doritos, you may want to decrease the spices a little.
It's best the first day because the chips get pretty soggy as leftovers.
Would also work with shredded chicken or beef.

Source: Not exactly rocket science, but I made it up myself.

Yield: About 8 servings. (should be pretty easy to decrease)
