Mexican Hash Brown Casserole

This was on the Emergency Essentials website and is using food storage but could certainly be made in whole or part using fresh or frozen food.

12 servings

4 C Emergency Essentials Hash Brown Potatoes, reconstituted according to package directions & drained
2 1/2 C Emergency Essentials Freeze Dried Ground Beef (Cooked), reconstituted & drained
2 C Tomato sauce made from Emergency Essentials Tomato Powder
3 C Mixed Emergency Essentials Freeze Dried Colby Cheese and Freeze Dried Monterey Jack, reconstituted & drained
1/2 C Emergency Essentials Freeze Dried Chopped Onion, reconstituted & drained
1 Tbsp Emergency Essentials Butter Powder, reconstituted
1 6-oz. package Cream cheese brought to room temperature
Mexican Blend Spice Mix  (I will be using my Homemade Taco Seasoning)

1/2 Tbsp Emergency Essentials Garlic Powder
3 Tbsp Emergency Essentials Chili Powder
1/2 Tbsp Emergency Essentials Iodized Salt
1/2 Tbsp ground Cumin
1/2 Tbsp ground Coriander Seed
1 Tbsp Smoked Paprika

Preheat oven to 350°
In a large skillet, melt butter and add chopped onions. Sauté until translucent.
Add ground beef and cook until meat is browned; mix well. Drain any excess fat.
Add Mexican Spice Blend and tomato sauce; simmer over medium heat for two minutes until warm.
Add cream cheese and 1 ½ cups of shredded cheese.
Stir until cheeses are melted and blended with sauce.
Turn off heat and add hash browns, mixing well. Pour into prepared 9 x 13 casserole dish. (If your skillet isn’t large enough to hold the entire mixture, layer sauce and hash browns in the casserole dish and stir to blend)
Bake at 350° for 45 to 50 minutes or until casserole is slightly browned along the edges. Add the rest of the shredded cheese and bake another 5 to 10 minutes until the cheese is bubbling.
Serve hot and top as desired.
