    Recipe Introduction

    This is a recipe I created to share on a recipe card for Angie, the bride of my son, Tommy. As her new mother-in-law, I felt it my duty to tell her that as long as she serves him Mexican, Italian, Meat & Potatoes and Hamburger Milk Gravy type recipes, he'll remain a happy man.
    Serves 6

    List of Ingredients

    • 8 ounces ground 90% lean turkey or beef
    • 1/2 cup chopped onion
    • 1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
    • 1 cup (one 8-ounce can) Hunt's Tomato Sauce
    • 1 cup Healthy Request tomato juice or any reduced-sodium tomato juice
    • 1 tablespoon JO's Chili Seasoning
    • 1 cup (3 ounces) coarsely crushed Forito's Reduced Fat Nacho Chips
    • 3/4 cup (3 ounces) shredded Kraft reduced-fat Chedder cheese


    1. Place meat, onion, and green pepper in a plastic colander. Set the colander in a glass pie plate. Cover and microwave on HIGH (100% power) for 5 to 6 minutes or until meat is browned, stirring occassionally. In a large bowl, combine tomato sauce, tomato juice, JO's Chili Seasoning, and browned meat mixture. Arrange crushed nacho chips in an 8-by-8-inch baking dish.
