Taco tower

My sister gave me this idea and I made it to great reviews…. from only one person, my husband. But, I am confident that if we shared it with others, they would like it too! This is a fun twist on tacos without using every topping bowl in the house.

Preheat oven to 350 and get out a round baking tray

You’ll need:

  • 1 lb ground beef + taco seasoning (and water)
  • 1 diced onion
  • 1-2 chopped peppers
  • 4 large soft tortillas
  • cream cheese
  • grated cheese
  • avocado, salsa, jalapeno yog dip, cheese whiz (all optional)

Saute:

  • onions & peppers (I added some beef at this time for the grease for browning)

Add and brown:

  • ground beef then add taco seasoning with 3/4 cup of water and let simmer
  • add jalapeno yogurt dip or cheese whiz at this point to make it a little creamy (or don’t, whateves)

In the meantime, spread:

  • cream cheese on one side of each tortilla (I just did a thinn-ish layer on each)

Place one tortilla with cream cheese up on your baking sheet (a pizza pan works well). Spread 1/4 beef mixture over tortilla and repeat –  tortialla, beef, tortilla beef. On the last tortilla, place cream cheese down (so it doesn’t burn in oven). Spread the remaining beef mixture on tortilla and top with grated cheese. At this point, add your extra veg – chopped tomato, salsa etc. I drizzled with hot sauce.

Bake at 350
