5 on Friday

This quick and easy recipe is ALWAYS a hit in our house. 


I hope your family will enjoy it too!


Taco Bake



  • 1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes with green chile peppers, drained
  • 1 (1.25 ounce) package taco seasoning mix
  • 8-16 ounces shredded cheese (Cheddar, Monterey, whatever you like best)
  • 1 bag of corn tortilla chips or 8-10 tortillas



  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a medium skillet over medium heat, brown the ground beef and drain fat. Add the diced tomatoes with green chile peppers and taco seasoning mix . Let simmer for 5 to 10 minutes.
  3. In the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish, place a layer of tortilla chips OR tortillas.
  4. Cover with a layer of the meat mixture then a layer of cheese. Repeat until the top layer is cheese.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until the cheese is melted.
If you do not use tortilla chips nor do you want to lay the tortillas on the bottom, you can just layer accordingly without those items (which is what I usually do). 

Then you can roll the mixture into a tortilla like a burrito adding a dollop of sour cream and salsa.  OR you can put on top of the tortillas chips for "nachos".

Pair with some spanish rice (brown rice mixed with a little bit of salsa) OR southwestern corn (corn mixed with a little bit of salsa).
