Easy Taco Bake

Every week there seems to be one day that time seems to slip by like sand in an hourglass, the days of our lives. Yeah sometimes it is a soap opera. It’s good to have a recipe that is simple to throw together at the last minute, that’s when this Easy Taco Bake would come in handy.

This Taco Bake is similar to the Taco Ring we often serve, but starts with baking mix on the bottom instead of crescent rolls, making it a little more budget friendly. It’s definitely a kid friendly meal and goes together in a snap.

I don’t remember exactly where we first found this or when we first tried it, and while it may not be what some purest consider a true taco dish. I’ve got to be honest, I don’t care. The ease in which this goes together and the number of servings you get make this very budget friendly as well.

To help stretch your dollars even further you can make your own baking mix and taco seasoning. We’ve grown accustomed to making our own seasoning because it allows us to tweak the flavor of the dish.

And if you are cooking for two there’s sure to be leftovers for the next day.

  2. I’ve been looking for this for years. Used to make all the time it was orginially on a Bisquick box. Also can add refried beans to the crust mix and top with cheese.

  3. I made this years ago also, it was on Bisquick box. I’ll have to try it again.
