This recipe was given to me by my late mother-in-law and it is my "go-to" recipe for when I'm: sick, tired, sick and tired, sick of being tired, ...you get it. This dish is delicious, dead easy, nutritious, and cheap. What's better than that?
Rotel. You must use Rotel chile and tomatoes. I know everyone south of the Mason-Dixon line knows about Rotel, but maybe it's universal now. It should be.
Kidney beans. I don't know whether any other bean would work, but this was in the recipe given to me and I've never strayed.
Ground beef. I like Chuck. It tastes good. I buy my own chuck roasts and grind my own ground beef with my Cuisinart mixer grinder attachment, but I'm the only nut I know who does that. If you use chuck from the store, you probably will need to drain it.
Diced tomatoes. If you really like pica, or "spiciness" as the Yankees call it, you can use another can of Rotel. Otherwise, use the diced tomatoes.
If you don't have tortillas, I'm sorry for you, but this is a nice alternative.
Ahhhh. Much better now.
