Recipe by LainieBug
I got this recipe from a co-worker, who brought the dish to one of our potlucks. It's actually a loaf of French bread with a filling.

What a great idea for a quick lunch or even a dinner. The combination of flavors went so well together. I used a can of Rotel tomato sauce that has green chilies in it and a fairly hot salsa so we had lots of zip in this which we loved. I did toast my bread for about 5 minutes before adding the meat mixture hoping to cut back on soggy which it did. I'll be making this one again. Thanks LainieBug. Made for PAC Fall 2012
- 1 loaf French bread
- 3⁄4 lb hamburger
- 1 onion, chopped
- salt & pepper
- 8 ounces salsa (or more to taste)
- 1 (4 ounce) can diced green chilies
- 1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
- grated mozzarella cheese (to taste)
- grated cheddar cheese (to taste)
Directions See How It's Made
- Heat oven to 350 degrees.
- Cut French bread in half lengthwise.
- Hollow out both halves of loaf, leaving about a 1-inch shell.
- Brown hamburger and onion in skillet.
- Drain off fat.
- Add salt, pepper, salsa, green chilies and tomato sauce to burger/onion mixture.
- Heat through until bubbly.
- Spoon evenly into both loaf halves.

- Place on cookie sheet and heat in oven until cheese melts (a few minutes).
