Tasty Stack of Taco Goodness

Like most humans with a pulse, we love Mexican food. This is a favorite recipe of ours which we just rediscovered. It’s a nice alternative to fast food, especially when you save some leftovers for those evenings where your brain and stomach are just going

So here you go.

Taco Bake

YOU WILL NEED:

  • Tortillas (we used whole wheat, medium sized)
  • Ground turkey (1 lb.)
  • Frozen corn (we used about half a bag total, maybe call it 1 CUP if you want to be exact)
  • 1 green bell pepper
  • 1 Onion
  • All-purpose Flour (1 Tablespoon)
  • Water (3/4 cup)
  • Chili powder (1 Tablespoon)
  • Cumin (a dash)
  • Garlic powder (again, a dash. But a bigger dash. Because garlic is awesome.)
  • Salsa (1/2 cup)
  • Refried beans (1 can)
  • About half a block of cheddar cheese

 

HERE IS HOW YOU MAKE IT:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Chop up the onion and bell pepper. Toss them in a big skillet with the turkey and cook until the meat is browned.IMG_1321
  2. Add the Tablespoon of flour, 3/4 cup of water, 1 Tablespoon of chili powder, dash of cumin, and bigger dash of garlic powder. Stir it all around until everything is pretty well mixed.IMG_1322
  3. In a medium bowl, mix together 1/2 cup of salsa and the can of beans. Lay two tortillas down in an oiled 9 x 11″ baking dish, and layer with half the meat/veggie mixture, 1/2 the bean/salsa mixture, and half of the corn. Repeat the layers with another pair of tortillas in between, and finish with another pair of them on top.IMG_1323
  4. Shred about half a block of the cheddar on top of the whole thing, and bake at 350°F for 25-30 minutes.IMG_1325
  5. EAT IT WITH YOUR FACE
