Taco Bake

Looking for a new hamburger recipe, here's one that's easy and uses ingredients you may have on hand.  This dish is cheesy and the leftovers, if you have any, are delicious the next day!

Taco Bake
Recipe Courtesy of The Country Cook
1 pound ground beef
1 packet taco seasoning
* water as called for on back of seasoning packet
3 large flour tortillas (8-inch size)
1/2 cup Salsa Con Queso
1 1/2-2 cups shredded Mexican cheese blend

Brown and crumble ground beef. Drain excess grease.
Add in taco seasoning and water (following directions on back of seasoning packet).

Once the taco meat is ready, turn off heat and had in 1/2 cup salsa con queso.
I like a mild salsa con queso. This is a spicy dish so a hot salsa con queso would just be too spicy for us.
If you have anyone in your family that is very sensitive to spicy dishes, you could always use a regular, spreadable cheese dip.

Preheat oven to 350F degrees.
Spray an 8-inch round baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.
Layer the bottom of  the pan with a flour tortilla.
Now add about 1/3 of the meat filling.  Then add 1/3 of the shredded cheese.
Continue until you are done with all of the layers.
Bake a 350 for 15 - 20 minutes. 
Allow to cool for a few minutes, cut into wedges.  Top with salsa or sour cream.
