Taco Bake

taco bake

While scoping out Pinterest recently, I ran across this little taco recipe.  As you know, My Honey is a little particular about his food, but when I read this recipe, I figured he would be just fine with it, which he was.  It’s a very simple, meat, cheese, and tortilla shell recipe; it’s like a taco in lasagna form.  You can find the orginal recipe here:  http://www.thecountrycook.net/2012/05/taco-bake.html.




  1. Brown and crumble ground beef.
  2. Drain excess grease.
  3. Add taco seasoning and water.  Mix to coat all the beef with seasoning, and allow water to boil off, stirring occassionally.
  4. Turn off heat, and add in salsa con queso.
  5. Stir until thoroughly combined.
  6. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  7. Spray 8 inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray, or coat lightly with oil.
  8. Layer the bottom of the pan with a flour tortilla.
  9. Spread about 1/3 of taco meat on top of tortilla.
  10. Sprinkle about 1/3 of the cheese on top of meat.
  11. Continue until you are done with all the layers:  tortilla, meat, cheese, tortilla, meat, cheese.
  12. Bake at 350 degrees for about 15-20 minutes, until the cheese is melted and the edges are slightly browned.
  13. Allow to cool for a couple of minutes.
  14. Slice and serve.

Topping and/or side ideas:

  • sour cream
  • diced tomatoes
  • chopped lettuce
  • your favorite salad dressing
  • guacamole
  • black olives
  • refried beans
  • Mexican rice
