Taco Bake

Happy Taco Tuesday! Today on the blog I am sharing a family favorite recipe! If you have ever had a baby or surgery and I brought a meal to you, 9/10 times I delivered this dinner to your front door. It is so easy to make and so delicious, it is always my go to! The best part is that most ingredients are probably already in your fridge! The other great part is that this recipe doesn't require measurements so it makes cooking go even faster. Easy and fast are what I need in my life right now, how about you? :)

So these are the 7 ingredients listed below:


1. Shredded Mexican Cheese

2. Taco Seasoning

3.Sour Cream

4. 1 pound of ground beef ( I like to get 85/15 for more flavor) 

5. Doritos

6. Pillsbury Crescent Dough Sheet

7. 1 Yellow Onion

Heat Oven to 350 degrees while preparing food


Heat medium skillet over medium high heat. Add meat and brown. Chop around  1/3 of a cup of onions (more or less depending on your taste) and mix in with ground beef.

When meat appears brown, follow directions of taco seasoning packet and add to meat mixture. While meat is simmering grease a 9x13 baking dish and roll crescent dough sheet onto pan.

Next carefully crunch Doritos chips while still inside the bag. This is great way to involve your kids with dinner, letting them crunch the Chips for you. Just be careful the bag does not explode! Place a thin layer of chips all over the dough. Use about half of the bag for the bottom portion of the chips.

Next carefully place your simmered meat on top of the chips, slowly spreading it out to create a thin layer. You can see the steam rising from the meat in this picture!

Grab the sour cream next with a spatula and place a thin layer of sour cream on top of the ground beef mixture. You can add more or less depending on how much you like sour cream! Fully coat the meat mixture. 

After you spread out the sour cream, grab handfuls of shredded cheese and place on top of the sour cream. Again you want to place a thin layer of cheese on top of the sour cream, but use your discretion as to how much you would like. 

Last step is to take the remaining half of Doritos from the bag and place on top of the layer of Cheese. Cover in foil and place in the oven for 25 minutes at 350 degrees. After 25 minutes take the foil off and leave in for a few more minutes, allowing the chips to slightly brown. That is it!

We always add Ortega taco sauce on top and it is the perfect addition to a delicious meal. 


So there you have it! Such an easy meal and my kids absolutely love it, Mercy will even ask for it when we go out to restaurants, haha! I hope you have a wonderful Tuesday and don't forget to subscribe the the blog for any future posts.
