Walking Taco Casserole
Kitchenmonki.com . I have had this at the pumpkin patch, but never thought of making it a casserole. At the pumpkin patch they opened a individual bag of fritos, put a spoonful of taco meat and melted cheese in the bag. I used a fork to eat it out of the bag. The mess was in the bag and you could eat it standing, without a plate, hence the name "walking taco."
Here is the recipe, and some of the changes that I made or would make next time. I am going to make this for a football game in the fall.
1 lb of ground beef
1/3 of a chopped onion
1 1/2 cups of shredded cheese.
Option A: taco seasoning packet. Add to skillet and make according to directions on package.
or Option B: Small can of green chillies, 1 can of enchilada sauce, 2 oz of cream cheese, add to skillet.
Brown ground beef in a skillet with onion. Drain any excess grease or water. I made option B, but omitted the cream cheese. Next time, I would make Option A.
Layer in a casserole fritos, beef mixture, cheese, fritos, beef mixture, cheese. Bake at 350 degrees, for about 15-20 minutes or until the cheese is bubbly. Enjoy with sour cream, salsa and guacamole.
