UUUMMmmmm GGGGoooooodddd ! ! ! ! !
These are some of the Ingredients you are going to need for the Mexican Pile-On RECIPE . . .
This is a GREAT RECIPE to use if you are going to have a large number of people to serve! You can make it the day before the party, and not have to rush around when your guests arrive!
ON THE DAY BEFORE THE PARTY ~
~ In a skillet, on your cook top, brown 4 LBS of Ground Beef and 3 chopped Onions ~
~ Drain off the grease ~
~ I line my Crock Pot with a Reynolds Crock Pot Liner - this makes for an easy cleanup!
~ Put your ground beef mixture in the Crock Pot
~ OK, now for the seasonings!
You will add:
2 cans Canned Tomatoes
1 large can Tomato Sauce
1 can Tomato Paste
1 TBSP Garlic Salt
4 TBSP Chili Powder
1 can Ranch Style Beans
Combine all the ingredients - at this point you can either Simmer in the Crock Pot for 4 hours, if it will be served that day, or put it in the refrigerator and Simmer for 4 hours the day of the Party!
~ NOW, to Serve the meal!
THIS IS THE PILE-ON PART- in separate bowls, offer the following add-ons:
Frito's - Rice - Onions - Shredded Cheddar Cheese - Tomatoes - Ranch Style Beans - Black Olives (sliced) - Coconut (sweet shredded)- Picante Sauce - Sour Cream - Pecans - Jalapenos - Guacamole - Lettuce - Cheese Queso, - and whatever else you like on your Mexican Food ! ! !
~THIS is how I set up to Serve the meal -
You will want to crush the Frito's in the bag before you put them in a bowl to serve them - (open the bag just a tiny bit before you crush them, or the bag will POP, and Frito's will go everywhere - I know this from experience!)-
I leave the meat in the Crock Pot so that I can keep it hot while serving -
AND, THE REST OF THE ADD-ONS -
~ THIS is how I prepared my Plate!
You will want to start small, because it grows quickly as you keep adding on!
~ PUT Crushed Frito's in the bottom of your plate -
~ ADD the Meat Mixture and your Cheese -
~Rice and Tomatoes -
~ Black Olives (sliced are better, but they were out at the store and I didn't take time to slice them myself) and Onions -
~ Picante Sauce, Sour Cream, and Guacamole -
~ Coconut (I know you are thinking "WHAT ?", but believe me, it makes the dish!)
~ NOW, that is how I like to make mine, but you can do it anyway you like! Everyone is free to add everything you have to offer, or be picky!
I HOPE YOU ENJOY YOUR MEAL ! ! !
