Taco Frito Pie!

 
 
This is just a fun little recipe that sort of takes tacos and nachos and combines them in a pie or casserole!   Try this on your usual taco night or serve it up for a snack for the big game!  Teenagers love this also, so this is great for sleepovers or those church youth group events!  Her is what you need:
 
1 lb. ground chuck or beef, browned drained
1 pk. taco mix
3/4 cup water
1 (9 3/4 oz.) bag of Fritos (I used the Frito Scoops)
1  (10.5 oz.) Campbell's  Fiesta Nacho Cheese Soup
1/2 cup milk
1 cup shredded Monterrey Jack cheese
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
 
Garnishes
shredded lettuce, sliced green onions, diced tomatoes, jalapeno rings, olives, sour cream ( anything you like on tacos)
 
Brown the ground beef and drain excess grease.  Add the taco mix and water, bring to a boil, then turn down and simmer for about 10 minutes. 
 
Place the corn chips in a deep pie plate or in a 9"x9" baking dish.
 
Layer the taco meat over the chips!
 
Place the soup and the milk in a saucepan and heat until smooth or place it in the microwave for 1-2 minutes.  Pour over the taco meat!
 
Sprinkle the cheese on top.  Place in a 350 degree oven for 15 - 20 minutes.
 
The cheese will be melted and bubbly!  Don't over bake it! 
 
This is good served on a bed of shredded lettuce with whatever taco toppings you prefer.  Just set out garnishes and let everyone garnish their own as they like!

  3. That is close to the Taco Salad we ate as children. The meat is the same. We used original Fritos. 1 can of tomatoes and green chilies melted with a half of a block of Velveeta. All of this layered over a large salad including onions and any other salad combo you want. Toss it coat everything with cheese and enjoy.
