As promised, I have the super tasty, mega easy Baked Queso Taco recipe for you guys.
I'm actually salivating remembering how delicious these guys were. Definitely need to add them to our menu next week!
My good bud Brittany let me know about these amazing tacos, courtesy of Mix and Match Mama (who I'm also a huge fan of). Boy am I glad that she did! These come together so quickly and taste like a super yummy, skillet queso dip, but in taco shells.
~8 taco shells (I did the kind that stand up)
~between 1-1.5 pounds ground beef or turkey
~8 oz Velveeta cheese
~1 10oz can Rotel
~1.5 Tbsp chili powder
~salt/pepper to taste
What You Do:
1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. While the oven is heating up, brown the ground beef in a medium skillet with the EVOO. Add in a pinch of salt and pepper to taste. Drain excess fat.
2. Add in the Velveeta cheese, Rotel and chili powder. Stir until the cheese is nice and melty.
3. Grease up a baking dish (I used 8x8 pan) and then stuff each taco shell with the meat mixture, and add to the baking dish. Bake for 8 minutes.
We topped ours with lettuce and sour cream. You can add whatever toppings you want!
And that's it--seriously it's THAT easy. And oh my word, get ready for the taste explosion that's about to happen!
You could also make this as an appetizer and just use the Velveeta mix, and have chips to dip into it.
