Easy Mexican Bake

Doughmestic Diva


Description: I LOVE Mexican food! In Texas, it's almost a religion. It's also usually very bad for you, full of fat, calories and grease! Like many things, I enjoy making my own versions at home to be able to control what goes into my food. This is a simple recipe that can be made in 30 minutes or less and it's always a crowd pleaser!

  1. In a large, oven safe skillet (I use cast iron) heat 1/2 tbs oil over medium high heat. Add ground beef & taco seasoning, Cook until meat is browned and cooked through. Remove from pan and set aside.
  2. Add remaining 1-1/2 tbs oil to the still hot skillet. Add the onion, bell pepper, jalapeno & potatoes. Add water and cover the pan for about 5 minutes, until the water is absorbed to cook potatoes. Add black beans, corn & chilies to the skillet. Cook for 2 minutes to warm everything through. Season with plenty of salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Add ground beef back in and mix everything thoroughly. Top with cheese and bake for 10 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
