Who wouldn't want to eat that? It is a lovely feast to the eyes. Here is the recipe and a tutorial on making it.
Easy Taco Casserole
1 lb. ground beef
3/4 Cups Chopped Onion
1 pepper (green, red or yellow)
1 (14 oz.) pkg. taco seasoning
3/4 Cups water
1 16 oz. can refried beans
1 (8 oz. ) jar taco sauce
2 1/2 Cups crushed tortilla chips (crush in zip loc bag)
1 3/4 Cups shredded cheese (sharp)
chopped jalepeno (optional)
lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream and avocado
Heat oven to 400. In medium skillet over medium hight heat, combine beef, onion, pepper; cook until beef is browned. Drain off fat. Stir in taco seasoning and water; simmer 10 minutes.
in another bowl combine refried beans and taco sauce. I also chopped a few jalepeno pieces and added to this. In an ungreased 8 inch square pan, layer half of the bean mixture, half of the beef mixutre, 2 cups crushed tortilla chips and 1 cup of cheese. Top with remaining bean mixture and beef mixture.
Bake at 400 for 25 minutes. Remove from oven; top with remaining tortilla chips and cheese. Return to oven; bak an additional 5 minutes until cheese is melted. Serve on a bed of romaine and topped with tomatoes, sour cream and avocado. YUMMY!
Here is what you'll need to make this! All that's missing is the beef and I forgot to add the pepper!
Here I have my beef, onion and pepper ready to cook and brown.
In the mean time I have my beans, taco sauce and a few jalepeno slices mixed together.
I have my beef cooked, water and taco seasoning cooking and simmering for 10 minutes.
In my glass dish I have half my bean mixture spread out in my pan.
And half of my beef mixture.
Cheese and crushed tortilla chips!
Now the rest of the bean and beef mixtures go on top of that. It goes in your pre heated oven for 25 minutes. layer more cheese and chips on that and heat the cheese until melted.
And here it is out of the oven and ready to eat. Delicious!!
Enjoy this very easy yet super tasty dinner.
