TOTAL TIME: Prep: 35 min. Bake: 35 min. YIELD:6-8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes, drained
  • 1 can (10 ounces) enchilada sauce
  • 1 can (2-1/4 ounces) sliced ripe olives, drained

  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) 4% cottage cheese
  • 1 egg, beaten

Directions
