I was looking for something quick and easy to fix for supper recently, and after looking through my pantry, I decided to make something out of items I already had to save a trip to town. Below is a recipe I put together. It came out great, my family loved it, and they wanted to know where I got the recipe!
Quick & Easy Stacked Dinner
1 (10 ct) pkg Brookshire’s Large Flour Tortillas
2 1/2 lbs ground hamburger meat
2 pkgs Brookshire’s Taco Seasoning
1 can Brookshire’s Sweet Corn, drained
1 can Brookshire’s Black Beans, drained
1 can Brookshire’s Diced Tomatoes, drained
1 1/2 pkgs (8 oz) Brookshire’s Colby Jack Grated Cheese
shredded lettuce, fresh tomatoes, sour cream, sliced avocado and hot sauce, optional
Wipe the bottom and sides of a 9 x 12 glass pan with olive oil (or vegetable oil). Layer with flour tortillas and set aside. Brown the ground meat; drain well. Add taco seasoning and 1/2 cup water; simmer until warm. Mix the corn, black beans and diced tomatoes together in a large bowl (drain canned items). Put a layer of ground meat on top of the tortillas. Add a layer of corn mixture, and then add grated cheese; repeat the process. Do 2 layers of items, ending with grated cheese on top. Place dish in the oven, and cook for 30 minutes at 400° F. Remove from the oven, and it is ready to eat. The tortillas on the bottom are crunchy, and the middle is soft…yum!!
My family added lettuce, fresh tomatoes, sour cream, avocado and hot sauce. We also ate it with Brookshire’s Seasoned Tortilla Chips and cheese dip. A quick and easy stacked dinner that satisfied the whole family.
It was fun trying to figure out what type of meal I could make out of what I already had at home. So…if you are ever exhausted and just dread a trip to the grocery store, take a second to look through your cabinet. I bet you can come up with something fun to eat, too. Count your blessings daily, and give thanks for time with your family!
