Tasty Tuesday/Taco Bake

Here we are again for some yummy goodness!  I got all good feedback on this recipe found also in blog land, I sit here wondering what I was thinking when I wrote down the recipe but not where I got it from.  So I apologize to the person who came up with with recipe!  

This is so simple, it's a must try!

~A few handfuls of macaroni noodles (prepare as directed by pkg)
~Diced onions
~1lb ground beef
~Taco Seasoning
~A jar of Salsa
~Frozen Corn
~Shredded Cheese (I used Mild Cheddar but I'm sure Mexican mix would be very good too!)
~Can of black beans (Optional...this was not on the original recipe, I added this on my own and it was great!)
~Diced Green Chilis (Optional)

Brown ground beef and diced onions
Prepare with Taco seasoning according to pkg

Mix everything except shredded cheese together in a 9x13 pan
Add shredded cheese on top

Cover with tin foil and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes
Remove tin foil and bake for 5 minutes or until cheese is golden brown

You can serve with any of these delicious toppings suggested by the original post
Hot Sauce
Sour Cream
Crushed Tortilla Chips
We thought it was yummy to add Taco Sauce as a topping

(Half eaten...yeah sorry about the lack of pictures, I guess my mind was too involved in the actual eating part this time!)

This was loved by everyone that tried it here...my 19 months old, my biggest food critic (my husband), my dad, my stepmom and myself!  It even made good leftovers....not a single bit was left to the dogs or the trash!

  1. That sounds delicious! Will have to try this

  2. Thanks for mentioning this one, I love all types of taco's, I am going to save and try this one too. :)

  3. We are big Mexican food lovers in my house - thank you so much for sharing this! Can't wait t try it. Glad you shared at Bunny Hop :)

  4. It's always good to make casserole that you can serve another day. I am one of the few who likes leftovers! (btw- onions are very toxic to dogs, don't want you to have the issues we had.)

    Thanks for sharing:)

  5. Bunny, I thought that was about cats? Our beagels are like little garbage disposals...they will inhale anything! I'm pretty sure they have never been given just straight onions but if it's in something we have never really thought about it. I do know...they didn't get any of the Taco Bake! Thanks for the heads up though!
