Baked Mexican Ziti


1/2 Lb Ziti made per package  & drain but keep the pot to cook your meat.
1 Lb ground beef or ground turkey or ground chicken ( I use turkey) + 2 TBS of oil for browning if NOT using beef. If you use beef drain off extra grease before adding seasoning & frozen vegetables
1 Lb Bag of Frozen Peppers & Onion  Vegetable Mix
1 16 oz jar of your favorite Salsa
Chili Powder to Taste
2 Cups Mac & Cheese Shredded Cheese Blend or your favorite Shredded Cheese.
6 Large Handfuls of your favorite Tortilla Chips lightly Crushed NOT FINE !

Spray a 3 & 1/2 Quart Casserole Dish. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brown burger, seasoned with the chili powder, in the same pan that you boiled your noodles. Add the frozen vegetables & cook until tender. Stir in salsa.Add the ziti to the pot & stir to combine. Pour everything into your prepared casserole dish. Spread 1/2 of the crushed tortilla chips over the top then the shredded cheese then top with the rest of your chips sprinkled evenly over the cheese. Bake for 1/2 hour until cheese is melted & bubbling !


VARIATION ! You made add a 1lb bag of frozen Mexican corn mix to this dish; or even a can of black beans for even more flare. Tonight I just wanted the plainer version ! When it is summer time I use fresh green peppers & sweet onions but in the winter I use the frozen or when I am short on time.I sometimes make this with rice instead of the noodles too ! You want about 6 servings of cooked rice ! This dish tastes great any way you choose to make it!
