As much fun as making and eating tacos are, I hate making them they always fall apart when eating them! The mess trying to fill them is just too much trouble to me when I work and always in a hurry for easy fun foods. Yes I am lazy when it comes to making fast food. I want it lightning fast. Here is my version of tacos that are much more fun in my opinion, no fuss at all. It's great even without the shredded lettuce and tomato but hey add what you all love after it's cooked! Taco casserole gone wild! Now when I bite into one it doesn't fall all over me.
Quick Taco Casserole Recipe
crushed corn tortilla and more for garnish on top ( I buy the package of 10)
1/2 pounds ground beef, ground turkey or 2 cups cubed cooked chicken
1 can chili beans in sauce 15 ounce
1 chopped bell pepper or 1 small can green chilies
1 teaspoon each chili powder, cumin, granulated garlic,
1/2 teaspoon salt, pepper (and small pinch of cayenne is optional)
shredded sharp cheddar
Optional: sour cream, sliced olives, jalapeno peppers, shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes, salsa, taco sauce, shredded sharp cheese
Cook meat till pink is gone, add beans in sauce simmer until thickens a little adding the peppers, all spices to taste.
Layer a baking pan or deep pie plate with crushed corn tortillas, top with meat mixture and top with cheese. Bake until cheese is melted and bubbling or just until is starts to melt. Serve with more crushed tortillas and more shredded sharp cheese if you like with any other optional toppings.
