Taco Meat

  • 1 LB ground beef *see vegetarian option in notes
  • ¾ cup salsa
  • 2 TB taco seasoning
  • ¼ cup water


  • 10-15 corn tortillas approximately
  • 1 can refried beans
  • 2 cups shredded cheese Mexican or cheddar


  • In a large skillet, cook the beef on medium heat until browned through. Add salsa and taco seasoning, reduce heat to low. Cook for 10-15 minutes, or until heated through and liquid is reduced. Preheat Oven to 350F.
  • Line a 8x8 baking pan with parchment paper. Spread about 2-3 tablespoons of refried beans on a tortilla, then place this bean side down in one corner of the lined pan. Repeat with 3-4 more tortillas to completely layer the pan.
  • Add half of the meat mixture to the pan and spread out evenly to fill the pan.
  • Sprinkle with one third of the cheese.
  • Make another layer of beany tortillas, meat and cheese.
  • Make a final layer of beany tortillas then finish the last third with cheese.
  • Bake at 350F for 20-30 minutes, until cheese is light brown and bubbly.



For vegetarian filling, rinse and drain a can of black beans. Place in a bowl with salsa and taco seasoning and stir. Microwave, covered, for 2-3 minutes, until beans begin to pop. Stir. The mixture should be somewhat thick and spreadable. If still loose or watery, microwave a little more and stir. Use this mixture to replace the meat filling in the layers.
