This recipe is a step up in flavor from the basicTator Tot Hotdish that was a stable when we were younger! it gets it's kick from adding some garlic and Pepper Jack Cheese and I think it's the best! It's actually from a contest some of the Senators had in Minnesota with a hotdish cook-off and Amy Klobuchar won..I am making it tonight for dinner with some salad and biscuits. I usually make half the recipe because I don't like a ton of leftovers these days and instead of using a can of each soup I use the Campbell's mixed can of soup called cream of chicken/mushroom instead and still use the pound of hamburger because we are meat lovers around here. Here is the link to the recipe.
