File this under "ugly yet tasty" in your recipe box.
What I used:
2 lbs of lean hamburger meat
2 cans of Rotel
2 cups of shredded Mozzarella
2 bell peppers
8 oz sour cream
8 oz cream cheese
1 pack of taco seasoning + extra chili powder and cumin BECAUSE I had 2 lbs of meat
Onion powder, BECAUSE I forgot to buy an onion.
What I did:
Preheat the oven to 350°
Brown the meat.
If you have ever read any of my food blogs, you know I hate browning ground meat. I don't know how I lived without this gadget.
While the meat was cooking I attempted to slice bell peppers. I know I have done this in my lifetime, I don't know why this is so complicated for me. It's not even because I sprained my left hand, I just suck at this.
I gave up and threw them in the processor.
I then threw them in a skillet with butter and cooked them for about 8 minutes on med-heat until they weren't as crunchy. If I would have remembered the onion, I would have had them both in the processor and skillet, but it is what it is.
When the meat is browned and drained, add the taco seasoning. For 2 pounds I knew one pack of seasoning wouldn't be enough, so I added extra spices.
After the veggies and meat are done, get your cool lime green bowl ready.
Add the meat:
Then the peppers and jalapenos:
Add the drained Rotel. I didn't use 2 full cans, maybe a can and a half. I don't like it much.
I pinched the block of cream cheese into it.
With my hands:
Add this much sour cream:
Add 3/4 of the Mozzarella.
Then...mix it all together.
Stick it in a 9x13 pan, smooth it all out, and bake for 40 minutes.
It comes out ug-ly, but very tasty.
