Easy Taco Bake

When fellow Hoosier, Amy from a Latte’ with Ott, told me about her Iron Chef Challenge, I knew I would want to join in. In January, the Challenge was Duck and in February it was Lamb, both of which I just don’t cook. But this month, is Red Gold Tomatoes, so I knew for sure I could come up with a recipe with tomatoes. And especially since they are grown in Indiana…did you know that?

Easy Taco Bake recipe from HoosierHomemade.com
  • 2 pounds Ground Beef, cooked and drained
  • 1 package Taco Seasoning
  • water
  • 1 can Red Gold Tomatoes with Green Chilies
  • 2 cups Bisquick or other baking mix
  • ⅔ cup water
  • cheese
  • shredded lettuce
  • sour cream
  • Red Gold Diced Tomatoes
  1. Spray a 13×9 baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Cook and drain ground beef, return to pan and add taco seasoning and water according to directions on package.
  3. Drain tomatoes with chilies and add to taco meat, cook until most of the liquid is gone.
  4. Meanwhile, while meat is cooking, add Bisquick to a small bowl, add water and mix until soft dough forms.
  5. Press into baking dish evenly.
  6. Top with taco meat and bake at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
  7. Remove from oven and add cheese.
  8. Serve with toppings of your choice.
This recipe fits in a 13×9 pan, but can be easily cut in half for a smaller family.

    What temp. do you bake it on?

    Looks yummy!

  3. I am going to have to try this, it looks yummy. I cook very little ground beef, but I make a vegetarian taco filling that would probably work just fine!!
