Cay's Firehouse Special

Cay’s Firehouse Special from Jen of Tatertots and Jello…

It’s kind of a mix between spaghetti and tacos. And so fun! My kids love it because it tastes good and they love that there are chips so it’s crunchy. I have no idea who Cay is, but that’s the name the recipe has always been called.

1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
1 1/2 yellow onions, chopped
1 tablespoon oil
1 (15 ounce) can kidney beans, undrained
1 (1 pound) can solid pack tomatoes, well drained
1 (3 ounce) bottle taco sauce
3 tablespoons chili powder
1 (4 1/2 ounce) can sliced olives, drained
1 (4 ounce) package cheddar cheese, shredded
1 medium package corn chips
shredded lettuce
2 cups sour cream

1. In a frying pan, brown the beef and onions in oil. Drain well.

2. Add beans, tomatoes, taco sauce, chili powder and olives.

3. In the bottom of a 3-quart baking dish, put half the meat mixture. Sprinkle with half the cheese. Cover with corn chips. Repeat.

4. Place in 350ºF oven, covered for 45 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes out of oven. Top with a thick layer of lettuce, chips and lastly, a layer of sour cream. Just like a fire call.
