Nacho Bake

Tonight I tried a new recipe for supper and I know I will definitely be making it again!


Here is what you will need:

1 12 oz package of velveeta shells and cheese

1 lb of ground beef (we used ground turkey)

1 package of taco seasoning

3/4 cup of water

3/4 cup of sour cream (we used low fat)

3/4 cup of shredded cheddar cheese (we used 1 cup)

3/4 cup of salsa

1/2 cup of tortilla chips

Here's what you will do:

Make the shells and cheese

Brown ground beef, drain, add taco seasoning and water.

Let simmer for 5 minutes.

Stir sour cream into the shells and cheese

The recipe called for an 8" square dish, but I used our normal casserole dish

Put half of the shells and cheese mixture as the first layer. Place taco meat on top. Place half of the shredded cheddar as the next layer, then place the rest of the shells and cheese mixture on top.

Cover and bake on 400 for 15 minutes.

Finally, top with salsa, the rest of the cheddar cheese and crushed chips.

Bake uncovered for 5 minutes.

Cool and enjoy!
