Western Meal in One

Recipe by Baby Chevelle

Another easy great recipe, can't remember where I got it from, but it is a good one, remember trying it when I had some ground beef thawed and didn't know what to make for dinner, and found this, the family loved it. It's one of those dishes you can always put togerther fast, and always seem to have the ingredients handy. I think it was about 5 or 6 years ago. Been making it every since.

I've been making this recipe since we moved to Sacramento in 76 and got a Sunset Magazine Cookbook from the Welcome Wagon (Does that organization still exist???) Anyway, my daughter still makes it, and my sister-in-law in Missouri! It's definitely a family tradition! A little time to put it together, then in the oven it goes! The Olives and Cheese really make it special!
