this is definitely a staple in our house. i realize that this is a classic mormon dish but we love classics! and, like meredith's recipe, you usually have most of the ingredients on hand. i made this for landen one night when kristen was out of town and he loved it. so you better make this one soon, kristen (and everyone else too!)
brown 2 lbs of hamburger
add 1 chopped onion
put in a bowl and add salt and pepper to taste, 1/2 tsp chili powder, 1 can tomato soup, 1 can cream of mushroom soup, and 1 can green beans (you can add any veggie you like).
pour in a large baking dish. top with mashed potatoes and sprinkle cheddar cheese on top. bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
