Recipe: Taco Grande

Taco Grande

1 pound hamburger
1 package taco seasoning
12 oz. salsa
(8) 6-inch flour tortillas
2 cups shredded Colby-Monterrey jack cheese
1 green onion, sliced
sour cream

Preheat oven to 350°. Spray 9×9 (or similar-sized) baking dish with cooking spray. A round dish makes for very pretty presentation!
Brown hamburger. Drain.
Add taco seasoning and 2/3 cup water. Simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in 1 cup salsa.
Arrange 4 tortillas in the bottom and up the sides of the baking dish. (Tortillas will overlap on bottom but not all of the sides need to be covered.)
Spoon meat mixture evenly over tortillas. Sprinkle with 1 cup of cheese and 1/2 of the onion.
Top with remaining 4 tortillas, overlapping slightly to create a scalloped edge effect. Press tortillas down over filling.
Spread remaining salsa over tortillas. Sprinkle with remaining cheese and onion.
Bake 30 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
Garnish with lettuce, tomato, and sour cream.
