A delicious and easy mexican Spinach and Hamburger Casserole Recipe
  Ground beef 1 Pound
  Salt To Taste
  Canned jalapenos 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Rotel tomatoes 10 Ounce, drained
  Seasoning 2 Teaspoon
  Sour cream 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Cream cheese 8 Ounce, softened
  Frozen spinach 10 Ounce, thawed and chopped
  Onion 1⁄2 Medium, chopped
  Pepper To Taste

Brown the hamburger and onion; drain fat. Put in a greased 2 1/2-quart casserole along with all remaining ingredients. Mix well and bake at 350* for about 40 minutes or until bubbly and browned on top.

I cooked mine for 20 minutes and it was already getting really brown, so it's best to watch it.
Also I mixed everything together in the frying pan before I put it in the casserole dish.

Taco Seasoning
(only use 2 tsp for this recipe)

1 teaspoon chili powder
3/4 teaspoon paprika
3/4 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/8 teaspoon garlic powder
Pinch cayenne

Combine and add to 1 pound browned and drained ground beef. Add a little water, if desired. This will be drier than taco meat made with a commercial mix due to the lack of thickeners. It tastes just as good as the store bought kind and is a lot cheaper to make.

Makes enough for 1 pound ground beef or 4-6 servings
