Okay...I say this dish is perfect for Sunday night football, or any other day of the week for fall.  It's a yummy mix between a casserole dish and nachos.  The hubby has always loved this meal...and the kiddos really enjoy it too.  Callie usually has two helpings, which is always a sign that it's a fav.

1- Pd lean ground beef
1- Pkg of Taco Seasoning
2-Cups of Chicken Broth
1/4- Cup of Flour or Cornstarch
1-Cup low fat Sour Cream
1- 7 oz can of diced green chiles
1- bag Whole Grain Tortilla chips (recipe does call for corn or regular tortilla)
2- Cups Monterey Jack or Cheddar Cheese
1/2-Cup Sliced green onions w/tops

In medium skillet, brown meat and stir until crumbly; drain fat.  Add taco seasonings, blend well.  in bowl, combine broth & flour.  Add to meat mixture, bring to a boil to slightly thicken liquid.  Stir in sour cream & chiles; blend well.  In 13x9x2 inch lightly greased baking dish, place 1/2 of chips, top with 1/2 of meat mixture, 1/2 of cheese & 1/2 of green onions.  Layer all remaining ingredients ending with green onions.  Bake uncovered at 375 for 20 minutes.

You can serve alone, with corn, black beans, or even spanish rice.

Enjoy~ and happy eating friends!!
