Looking for a fast dinner seems to be the norm around here lately and so either the crock pot or the casserole dish comes out early in the morning. I like having dinner ready when I get home from work, one thing I don't have to think about. This week it was the casserole dish. I wanted something extra healthy and knew we needed to have some extra veggies and this casserole is perfect for just that. In no time the prep work is done and it's in the oven, making time for getting a hold on the laundry. Question - how can 2 people create so much laundry? I'm thankful to have the clothes so I'm not complaining but it seems like the hamper gets full mighty fast some days. Anyhow I digress - make this sometime, it's spicy so adjust the spices to your liking and serve with a nice crusty bread (for those not living low carb)
Spinach & Hamburger Casserole
1 pound hamburger
1/2 Red Pepper chopped
1 can tomatoes w/green chili
12 oz spinach (If frozen allow it to thaw first)
8 oz cheddar cheese (cubed)
2 Teaspoons Chili seasoning
Crushed red peppers to taste
Cook hamburger with seasonings then drain off the fat.
In a large greased casserole dish combine the seasoned hamburger, 1/2 of the cheese, the tomatoes with chili, and spinach top with remaining cheese and bake for 40 minutes at 350.
Makes about 6 servings with net carb count of only 4 per servings. If you don't like spinach, then any vegetable will do so add your favorite and enjoy.
Since it's been so cold (in the 30's only) having the oven on is a bonus as well. I sit with a cup of vanilla/caramel chi and relax while dinner cooks in the oven. What a way to end the day.
How do you like to end your day? What warm dinners is your family enjoying tonight?
