Taco Bake-2

Cinco De Mayo day Bake!

This was orignally made for Cinco De May! To My World Cinco de Mayo means Mexican food!!!! According to the History Channel , Cinco de Mayo isn’t much of a holiday in Mexico. Here in the USA though it is taking off. It’s a day to celebrate Mexican heritage. Cinco de Mayo is truly a celebration of one battle in a war between the French and Mexicans.

Taco Bake

Today my family will dine on my version of Mexican food. Sorry to all the true Mexican chefs out there. No harm intended, lol, I know this is nothing like authentic Mexican food. I am calling it My World Cinco De Mayo Bake!

                                                        My World Cinco De Mayo Bake Recipe: 

taco bake pie
1-10 pack flour tortilla shells (medium size)
                            Layer one
1 lb ground beef
1 can tomatoes
1 can black beans
1 pkg taco seasoning (I make my own using about 2 tbsp chili powder, 2 tsp paprika, 2 tsp garlic powder, 1 tsp onion powder, and some ½ tsp cumin, I usually just eyeball it though)
                            Layer two
1 package Fresco crumbling cheese, Crumbled small
2 -8ounce pkg shredded cheese we used montery jack
                          Layer three
2 cans refried beans
                           Toppings
Chopped tomatos
Sour cream
Guacamole
Fresh spinach
Salsa
Chopped onion

Preheat oven to 375. Brown beef in a medium sized skillet, drain meat (I always give it a rinse with hot water) add the can of black beans, juice and all, same with the can of tomatoes. Add the taco seasoning and cook over low until slightly thickened.
