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
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!
