Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1lb ground beef
  • 1 1/2 Cups enchilada sauce
  • 1 cup corn kernels (roasted, cut from the ear)
  • 1 4.5 oz can chopped green chiles
  • 1 cup shredded monterey jack cheese (divided)
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (divided)
  • kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper, to taste
  • tortilla chips (for serving)

Note

For a more spicy kick, replace 1/2 lb of the ground beef with 1/2 of Mexican style Chorizo.  It will give it a nice healthy punch of flavor, with out it being too overwhelming for any of your kids.

Directions

Step 1
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly oil two 10-oz ramekins or coat them with a non-stick spray.
Step 2
In a saucepan over medium high heat bring your olive oil to temp. Add your ground beef and cook until browned, this will take about 3-5 minutes, make sure to crumble the beef as you stir through it. Drain any excess fat. Stir in the enchilada sauce, corn, chiles, and 1/2 cup of the both cheeses; season with salt and pepper to taste.
Step 3
Divide the hamburger mixture evenly between the two ramekins and top with the remaining cheeses.
Step 4
Place ramekins in the oven to bake until the mixture is bubbly around the edges, this will take about 5 minutes. Let it cool for at least 5 minutes before serving.
