BEEF TACO BAKE
My granddaughter Malinda Sue gave me this recipe and my grandson David (he lives with me) made it last night…You simply have to make this…It is so simple to make and soooo good to eat…It was even better today…
2 cans of Ro-Tel tomatoes with green chilies drained (reserve 1/2 cup juice)
1 can refried beans
1 tablespoon hot sauce…(David used 2 tablespoons of Frank's Hot Sauce)
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
3 cups shredded cheddar cheese
12 taco shells
1-1/2 pounds ground beef
1 packet taco seasoning mix
3 green onions chopped
Preheat oven to 475 degrees.
Mix 1 can tomatoes, refried beans, hot sauce and cilantro in a bowl.
Spread evenly over bottom of rectangular baking dish and top with 1 cup cheese.
Cook ground beef in skillet until no longer pink.
Drain off any fat and add taco seasoning.
Fill each taco shell with some cheese and beef.
Place in bean mixture so standing upright.
Once all shells are filled cover pan with foil and bake 10 minutes.
Remove foil and bake another 6 minutes until cheese melts.
Sprinkle with the chopped green onions & serve.
