2. Then add the ground beef and season with salt and pepper, cumin, allspice and cook until just browned (cooked through). It is going in the oven so don’t overcook the beef.
3. Set your skillet at an angle and allow all the fat to drain away from the beef mixture. Soak up the grease with a paper towel and discard.
4. In a 9 x 13 x 1 1/2 inch baking dish add one can of the chilis, spread evenly over bottom of dish.
5. Sprinkle with the sharp cheese and then add the drained ground beef mixture, spreading evenly.
6. Add the second can of chilis over the meat.
7. In a small mixing bowl add the milk, sour cream, flour, salt, pepper, beaten eggs and dash of tobasco. Whisk well until smooth and pour this mixture evenly over the dish.
8. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 to 50 minutes until it is set. Add some cheese to the top about ten minutes before the dish is done. If the dish is not brown enough when cooking time ends, turn the oven on broil, watch carefully so it doesn’t burn, only takes about five minutes or so. Cut into squares to serve and top with sour cream black olives and chopped green onions. Enjoy!
