Lazy Taco Tuesday

Every Tuesday we do some version of tacos or Mexican for dinner. But in the summer, when I'd rather not be spending so much time in the kitchen, THIS is a the perfect alternative. It's easy, quick and everyone loves it!

Here's the recipe:

1 1/2 c. crushed tortilla chips
1 lb. ground beef or turkey
1 envelope taco seasoning
1 (16 oz.) can refried beans
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Toppings: shredded lettuce, tomatoes, onions, olives, guacamole, sour cream, salsa

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Pour crushed tortilla chips in the bottom of an 8x8 dish. Set aside.
Brown ground beef until no longer pink; drain.
Add taco seasoning and amount of water required by package directions.
Add refried beans to seasoned meat and mix over medium heat.
Once the meat and bean mixture is heated through, removed from heat and spoon over the tortilla chips.
Top with cheese.
Bake for 20-25 minutes.
Serve with your favorite toppings.

Happy Taco Tuesday!
