Hot Chipped Beef ala Zola
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
4 Tbl butter, divided
one half cup of sour cream
one half cup mayonnaise
1 - 8oz package of cream cheese, softened to room temperature
5 oz of sliced corned beef chopped
1 cup of chopped pecans
whole wheat crackers
In a large sauté pan put in the onion, green pepper, and two tablespoons of the butter. Heat on medium high until the onion and bell pepper are softened. Add the sour cream, mayo, cream cheese and chopped beef. Stir on medium low until you have a creamy white sauce and the beef is all mixed in. Pour this whole concoction into a 9 X 9 oven proof pan.
In a small sauce pan put in the last two tablespoons of butter. Start the better melting and add the pecans. Coat the pecans in the hot butter until hot and bubbly and then spread them across the top of the cream cheese/ beef mixture.
Bake 15 - 20 minutes until the dish is completely heated through. Serve hot or warm with the whole wheat crackers. Be prepared to watch your guests balance large scoops of hot beef on their crackers. They can't help themselves. This dish is addictive and can disappear fast.
