Tasty Tuesday- Tortilla-Chili Casserole and Banana Bread

I love trying out new recipes but it is often hard to find recipes that everyone loves. It is even rarer to find dinner recipes that everyone asks for seconds or thirds. I have been trying some new recipes and have found a winner in the Tortilla-Chili Casserole. It is easy and takes no time at all to assemble and cook.

1 (9 oz.) package tortilla chips, coarsely boken
2 (11 oz.) cans Cheddar soup, undiluted
2 (15 oz.) cans chucky chili with beans

Garnishes: sour cream, pickled jalapeno pepper slices

Place 4 cups broken chips in a lightly greased 13 X 9 X 2 nch baking dish; spread 1 can soup over chips. Spread chili over soup, and top with remaining can soup. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining chips; bake 5 more minutes. Garnish if desired. Yeild: 8 servings

I usually serve with Mexi-corn and a simple salad.

Several weeks ago I did a post on Elizabeth and I making Banana Bread. I thought I had included the recipe, a friend of mine later pointed out that I had not. So here is that recipe.

Banana Bread


1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
2 eggs
3 large bananas
3 Tbl. Buttermilk
1 tsp. soda
2 cups flour, I use 1 cup whole wheat and l cup plain
1 pinch salt
1/2 tsp lemon juice
1/2 to 3/4 cup walnuts

Cream together first 5 ingredients. Mixed the next three together in a seperate bowl. Slowly add the flour mixture to the banana mixture. Once mixed add the lemon. After that is mixed stir in the walnuts, if desired.

Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.

And let me know if you try and like these.
