Let’s get to the goodness!

  • 2 pounds of ground beef or turkey
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 2 poblano peppers, diced
  • 1 can Cream of Mushroom soup
  • 1 can Tomato Soup
  • 1 jar Enchilada Sauce (this is my 15 minute homemade recipe)
  • Corn Tortillas
  • Mexican style or Monterey Jack cheese

Brown two pounds of ground beef, onions and poblano peppers in a skillet.  (Poblano peppers generally don’t have the heat that jalapenos do, especially if you remove the veins when chopping them).  I typically season it with salt and pepper but you can use whatever favorite seasoning you have.
