Hamburger Black Olive and Tortilla Casserole

Thought I would try something new today with my hamburger.  Went for a mexican flair; didn’t come out too bad.  Not quite what I was envisioning but good flavor over all.  I think it might make a good dip for corn tortillas if I cheese it up a bit more and omit the flour tortillas; I’ll have to play around with this one again.

  • 1 pound hamburger
  • 1/4 cup diced onion
  • 2 jalapeno ~ sliced or diced
  • 1 tsp mexican oregano
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp crushed cumin seed
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 4 o.z. cream cheese
  • 1 small can sliced black olives
  • 1 can tomatoes ~ I like to use whole tomatoes and smash them up; they seem to have the best texture
  • 2 – 3 tortilla shells; cut into small squares or strips

Cook hamburger, onion, and jalapeno in large skillet until meat is cooked through.  Drain and return to skillet; stir in remaining ingredients except for the tortillas.  Heat through and stir in cut tortillas.  Serve with sour cream, shredded cheese, lettuce, jalapeno or any desired condiments.
