Mmmmm...melty, cheesy, goodness!

I totally meant to take a picture of it plated, but, well, they smelled amazing and we were starving, so we pretty much pulled them out, threw them on a plate with sour cream and stuffed our faces! Lol!

 Last night we made the Easy Taco Bake recipe from the Betty Crocker site.  We left out the black olives to make it more kid friendly.

Here is the recipe from the site: Old El Paso® Recipes&term=Old El Paso&itemId=e08395d9-929b-4981-95ad-a150bbd39ad2 

Easy Taco Bake

Easy Taco Bake  

Old El Paso® salsa and seasoning mix add Mexican flavors to this cheesy casserole that's filled with beef and Progresso® beans and topped with Pillsbury® pizza crust.


  • TOTAL TIME 45 Min
lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
jar (16 oz) Old El Paso® Thick 'n Chunky salsa (2 cups)
package (1 oz) Old El Paso® taco seasoning mix
can (15 oz) pinto beans or Progresso® black beans, drained, rinsed
can (3.8 oz) sliced ripe olives, drained
can (13.8 oz) Pillsbury® refrigerated classic pizza crust
cup corn chips, crushed
cup shredded Cheddar cheese (4 oz)
cups shredded lettuce
cup diced tomato (1 medium)
cup sour cream
  • 1 Heat oven to 400°F. In 12-inch skillet, cook beef over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thoroughly cooked; drain. Stir in salsa and taco seasoning mix. Reduce heat; simmer uncovered 5 minutes.
  • 2 Stir beans and olives into beef mixture. Cook until thoroughly heated and bubbly. Spoon into ungreased 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish. Unroll dough over filling; sprinkle crushed corn chips over top.
  • 3 Bake 13 to 17 minutes until light golden brown. Sprinkle cheese evenly over chips; let stand 5 minutes to melt cheese. Serve with lettuce, tomato and sour cream.


We really loved it!  First, let me say, it was so easy to put this together!  After you brown and season your beef, you just assemble it all and bake it, doesn't get much more simple than that.  My picky 7 and 3 year olds loved it.  It made a ton, so my husband is having the left overs for lunch today and I have no reason to believe that it wouldn't reheat well.  This one is a winner, we will make again for sure!

I was excited to get my ingredients to make the Cheesy bacon-bean quesadillas. My Husband is a very picky eater and the beans were making me a little nervous. However, to my surprise he loved them!! I bought Old El Paso re fried beans, salsa, and the tortillas. Luckily, it was located in our ethnic food aisle and the bright colors on the packaging made it easy to spot. 

Our family has mexican food atleast twice a month, we will defenitly keep this recipe in the "rotation". 

I would recommend Old El Paso foods to my friends, and already did to my Mom and Mother in law. Sorry, I do not have pictures. I did not remember to take them until after the evidence was eaten... I mean gone :-)

 Thank you Cafemom and Old El Paso.  So excited for this project!   Looking forward to trying some new recipes. 

Old El Paso has a large variety of product to choose from.  After looking over the site for recipes I choose to make  Spicy chorizo stuffed peppers and to go with that a taco salad.  

The recipes are quick and easy to follow. 

Tonight I'm making chili chicken enchiladas.  ...requested by my 11 year old son. So I will update with that dinner tomorrow
