Taco Bake

               The husband loves Mexican-inspired dishes (really, there isn’t much he doesn’t love, but Mexican is certainly up there!). To his excitement, I love to make them. This recipe is a great one-dish meal for those that need something delicious & filling. It can easily serve a family of four & is a great alternative to taco night. The only downside? Its chock full of calories and fat. But those calories and fat are real delicious!!
              The pictures don't do the dish justice. You shall have to trust me on this one.

1 lb ground beef
1 small onion, chopped
1 package reduced-sodium taco seasoning
½ cup water
½ cup salsa
1 green pepper, chopped
1 can corn, drained
1 tomato, chopped
3 medium or large tortilla wraps
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

  1. Spray a large skillet with non-stick spray, then add ground beef & onion. Cook over medium-high heat until beef is browned. At this point, turn on oven to 375F.
  2. Add taco seasoning, water, salsa, pepper, corn, and tomato & continue cooking for about 5-6 more minutes, until vegetables are softened.
  3. Spray a 9” round baking dish with non-stick. Place one tortilla wrap into bottom. Fill with ½ the ground beef mixture. Place another tortilla wrap and 1/3 of the cheese on top. Add 1 more wrap, then remaining beef mixture. Cover with wrap and remainder of shredded cheese.
  4. Bake for 20 minutes in oven, until cheese is bubbly. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
