As promised the recipe:
For the crust-
1 Can of Refried Beans
1/4 cup of Water
1 cup of bisquick
Combine thoroughly to form the crust and press into a greased pie tin or glass Pyrex baking dish. I use an 8x8 glass baking dish.
1 lb ground beef* 2 options see below
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 1/2 cups shredded cheese ( I like the Mexican blend but cheddar is fine)
1 can of salsa (your choice) optional
Now there are two options for the filling. You can brown the ground beef and season with salt/pepper. Or if you have left over meat from taco night you can use it. Its just the beef seasoned with a Lowry's taco seasoning pouch. Combine the beef with the chopped onions. If you go with option one, add the beef mixture to the crust and pour 1 can of salsa over it then top with the shredded cheese. Otherwise pour the taco meat mixture (and onions) into the crust and top with the cheese.
Bake in the oven for 30minutes at 375 degrees. You can top the bake with sour cream, diced tomatoes, or even green onions.
This is what is on the dinner menu for tonight. Pictures to follow!
