Here’s a slight twist on the traditional taco casserole recipe. The cheesy potatoes add another level of flavor to the tasty beef and seasoned cheese. Run for the border indeed!
1/2 pound ground beef
1 package au gratin potatoes
2 1/4 cups boiling water
2/3 cup milk
1 cup shredded taco-seasoned cheese
1 cup coarsely broken tortilla chips
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Cook beefs in 10-inch skillet over medium heat 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until brown; drain.
Mix uncooked potatoes, sauce mix, boiling water and milk in un-greased 2-quart round casserole. Stir in beef and 1/2 cup of cheese.
Bake uncovered 30 minutes or until top is light golden brown. Sprinkle chips over casserole; sprinkle remaining cheese over chips.
Bake 3 to 5 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Let stand 2 minutes before serving.
