Foodie Friday : Taco Bake

 Sometimes in life we need a quick and easy dinner and there is nothing like the Taco Bake Casserole.  This is an easy alternative to the typical tacos.  It is the crunch, the flavor and the cheese all baked into one easy to make dish.   It really is a tasty treat!

Taco Bake Ingredients

Chili Cheese Fritos

1 lb hamburger

1 pckg taco seasoning

1 can cheddar Cheese soup

1/4 cup milk

1 cup shredded Mozzarella Cheese


  1. 1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray a 9x9 pan with a nonstick cooking spray. 
  2. 2 Brown hamburger in a skillet over medium heat. When meat is cooked thoroughly, add the taco seasoning and water. Mix and simmer for 5 minutes.
  3. 3  Spread Chili cheese Fritos in a layer over the prepared 9x9 pan. 
  4. 4 Pour hamburger over the fritos and spread evenly. 
  5. 5 In a small saucepan, mix cheddar cheese soup and milk. Heat over medium heat until warm. 6 Pour the cheese soup over the hamburger mixture. 
  6. 7 Sprinkle Mozzarella cheese over the Cheddar cheese soup. 
  7. 8 Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly.
  8. 9  Serve immediately. Can be served with your favorite taco toppings.
This is truly a tasty dish.  It is a bit high in sodium and you can actually taste the saltiness, but it is still delicious!

Foodie Friday is a frugal foodie Friday. How do you come up with so many ideas? I struggle so hard with what to make. Meal planning is not my thing which is why I struggle to lose weight. Looking forward to next frugal Friday.

I remember making taco casserole, instead of beef we used lentils.
