I don't know what it is, but lately I've been on a Mexican flavor kick. From Homemade Crunchwraps to Tacos, Quesadillas and everything in between.
In keeping with that theme, tonight I made a Layered Nacho dish. The beauty about this is that it's so versatile and you can add or remove anything you don't like. It is also one of those that everyone in the family can enjoy however they wish.....you want it in a hard taco shell, go for it. Want it in a soft flour tortilla, by all means....or maybe you just want to scoop this delicious stuff all over tortilla chips for some amazing nachos....yep, you can do that too.
It's quick to put together, it tastes amazing and your whole family will thank you for it.
Layered Nacho Dinner
1 pound ground beef
1 packet taco seasoning
1 can refried beans
Queso Dip (I'm talking the ever famous queso dip involving Velveeta cheese and Rotel tomatoes and chilies)
Sour Cream, optional
Prepare the Queso dip according to the directions on the back of the Rotel can. It is nothing more than emptying the can into a microwavable bowl, adding a 16 oz. block of Velveeta cheese, cut into 1 inch cubes. Cover and microwave for 5 minutes until melted, stir well and there you go.
Brown the ground beef, drain and add in a packet of taco seasoning, mix well to combine. Add a can of refried beans, stir and cook for a minute or two until warm.
In a casserole dish, pour in the meat and beans mixture. Next goes in the queso dip, followed by diced onions, shredded lettuce and diced tomatoes. That is IT!!!!
Serve along with tortilla chips or soft and hard taco shells. Enjoy!!!
Optional: You can add a layer of sour cream right after the meat and before the queso dip. You can also add black olives to the toppings, or sliced avocado, dollops of sour cream etc. It really is up to you.
