Join The Lil Chef and Myself on our "Food Adventures"! There will be recreations of "Old Classics", exploration of new Allergy Free products (as they come out), the making of my many food cravings, and testing of recipes. We are ALWAYS trying to raise awareness of food allergies & intolerances one post at a time. This page Gluten Free, Wheat Free, mostly Allergy Free, hopefully, one day Yeast Free, NO red meat, Dairy, and Lactose Free.
In a medium skillet over medium heat, brown the ground beef and drain fat.
Add the diced tomatoes with green chilies, water, sour cream and taco seasoning mix.
Let simmer for 5-10 minutes.
In the bottom of a greased 9x13” baking dish, place a layer of tortilla chips.
Cover with a layer of meat mixture then a layer of cheese.
Repeat this process until the last layer is cheese.
Bake for 20 minutes, or until the cheese is bubbly.
NOTE: Taco Bake is a very simple recipe with limited ingredients. If you want to amp up the flavors and texture of this casserole, add a layer of any or all of the following: drained, whole kernel corn, drained pinto or black beans, sliced olives, diced red & green bell peppers, sliced jalapeno peppers, and green onions after the first layer of cheese is applied.
NOTE: A small amount of diced, seeded jalapeno peppers can be added to the meat mixture if you want more heat.
NOTE: If you want to increase the heat in the recipe try Pepper Jack cheese for all or part of the cheese.
NOTE: Do not overcook the recipe or the casserole can dry out.
NOTE: Extra cheese helps prevent the casserole from getting too dry.
