Crunchy Taco Bake

If you are like me and are obsessed with tacos then you have got to try this Crunchy Taco Bake. It's a fun change from the traditional taco and trust will love it!

Crunchy Taco Bake
Serves 6
Cal 254, Fat 10.3g, Carbs 15.1g, Fiber 3g, Protein 22.5g

1 pound lean ground beef (I used lean 93/7 ground turkey)
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped green pepper
1 envelope taco seasoning
1/2 cup water
1 cup crushed tortilla chips (I used baked scoops)
1 cup fat free refried black beans
1 cup reduced fat shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup petite diced tomatoes
Toppings: chopped lettuce, cilantro, sliced ripe olives, sour cream and salsa

In a large skillet, cook beef, onion and green pepper over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in taco seasoning, water, tomatoes and refried beans. Cook and stir until thickened, about 3 minutes; set aside.

Place 1/2 of the chips in a greased baking dish. Top with beef mixture, more crushed tortilla chips and shredded cheese.

Bake, uncovered, at 375° for 15-20 minutes or until heated through. Top with lettuce, tomatoes and olives. Serve with sour cream and salsa. Enjoy!
