Bears Bake

January 5, 2010

This is named Bears Bake because I frequently make it for Sunday afternoon Bears games. It tastes a lot better than the offensive line played this year! Maybe we'll have a Jay Cutler sandwich. . . .

1 1/2 lbs ground meat (any kind, any combo)
1 onion
4 cloves garlic
1/4 c chili powder
1 Tbsp cumin
2 15 oz cans tomato sauce
1/4 c fresh cilantro
2 16 oz cans kidney beans
1 c chopped black olives
10 oz bag Fritos
1 lb grated cheddar

Brown meat, onion, and garlic. Drain. Add chili powder and cumin. Cook stirring for two minutes. Add tomato sauce, lower heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Add 2 Tbsp cilantro. Spray 13 x 9 pan. Drain and rinse beans and olives. Spread half the meat in baking dish, half the beans, half the olives, half the chips, and half the cheese. Repeat. Bake 40-45 minutes until bubbling. Sprinkle with remaining cilantro.
