Chili Cheese Hash Brown Bake

Another hearty, delicious recipe I recently added to my weeknight easy menu. Not only is so simple to put together after a long day, but you can spice this up or down as much as you want. I wanted to keep this family friendly so Spencer could enjoy it to. 

To kick it up a notch, just add some cayenne pepper or replace the chili beans with hot ones.

1-1/2 lbs. lean ground beef
1 (15.5 oz) can original sloppy joe sauce
1 (15 oz.) can chili with beans
1/2 bag (30 oz.) frozen country-style shredded hash browns (about 4 cups)
2 cups (8 oz.) shredded medium cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Brown beef in a large skillet. Break it apart well until crumbles. Stir in sloppy joe mix and chili.

Spoon mixture into a lightly greased 9 x 13 inch baking dish. Top with frozen hash browns.

Bake uncovered for about 30 minutes, uncover and bake 10 minutes more or until edges are brown and crisp. Sprinkle with cheese and bake 5 minutes more or until cheese is melted.

Biscuits or bread-sticks are a great side too!
