Traeger Grills is a crave worthy brand to follow. The recipes they come up with are inspiring & delicious! Firing up the grill and whipping up something tasty is a true past time. However, we know that many folks either don't care to grill or just simply aren't able to. So, we adjusted the recipe a bit to prepare this dish in the oven. It turned out just as delicious!
To start, get the oven preheated to 350°
12-1ounce slices pepper jack cheese cut into 1” squares
2-bags shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1# Alexander’s Prime Grade ground round
1 brown onion, diced
1 Jalapeño, diced or sliced (If you like it super spicy use two serrano peppers)
1 ½ containers cherry tomato’s cut in 4 pieces
Brown Alexander’s Prime Grade ground round in pan
Add chili powder, cayenne, garlic salt and turmeric to meat as it cooks
Drain out excess liquid
Add ½ of diced onions to meat mixture and mix
Place ground round into casserole dish - check out photo to tip on placement
Add shredded cheddar cheese, squares of pepper Jack cheese, ½ diced onion, diced Jalapeño and cherry tomatoes into the casserole dish. Try to segregate ingredients as you will stir everything once recipe has been in oven for twenty minutes and has time to melt and mingle
Cover casserole dish with tin foil and place casserole dish into oven
Cook for thirty minutes, stirring recipe 3-4 times.
After cooking thirty minutes, uncover & mix thoroughly then cook uncovered for another fifteen minutes.
