This hearty casserole has become one of my favorites to prepare. It's also one of my family's favorites to eat! So I guess that works out well, huh? It has all the flavors of tacos with a little less mess. My kids call it Tacos You Can Eat with a Fork!
You can customize the toppings based on your family's preferences. And you can easily double the recipe if you've got a large group to feed.
Here's what you need:
1 lb ground beef
1 can (16 oz) refried beans (you can use homemade, about 2 cups)
1 cup salsa
2 TBSP taco seasoning
Tortilla chips, coarsely crushed, about 2 cups
Shredded cheddar cheese, about 2 cups
Your favorite taco toppings
In a large skillet, brown the ground beef. Drain. Stir in the refried beans, salsa and taco seasoning until everything is well mixed.
In a 8x8 dish, layer half the crushed chips, then half the cheese.
