This is another one from my Somersize mailing list. It's good for Level 1, in spite of the small amount of flour it contains.
- 1 cup chopped onion
- olive oil, for browning meat
- 2 lbs ground beef
- 1 (1 ounce) package taco seasoning
- 3 eggs
- 1 (14 1/2 ounce) can diced tomatoes
- 1 teaspoon flour
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (more if desired)
- Heat olive oil in medium skillet.
- Saute onion in olive oil until soft.
- Brown ground meat with onion.
- When meat is almost cooked through, add taco seasoning.
- When meat is cooked completely, drain off grease and set aside to cool.
- In a large casserole dish, beat eggs.
- Open diced tomatoes and drain the juice off into a small mixing bowl.
- Add the flour to the juice of the tomatoes and mix well until the lumps are gone.
- Add flour/juice mixture to eggs and stir well.
- Add shredded cheese to egg mixture.
- Add ground beef and tomatoes to egg mixture and stir well.
- Bake in a preheated 350-degree oven for 1 hour, or until set and cooked all the way through.
- You can top with a layer of shredded cheese halfway through cooking time if desired.
- Serve topped with salsa and sour cream, if desired.
I tried this for the first time last night. I wanted to cut the recipe in half so I only used 1 pound of ground meat and I substituted ground turkey for ground beef. I also only used 2 eggs instead of 3, but I kept all the other quantities and amounts the same. It turned out really good and I will definitely be making this again for our weekly "Mexican Night".
This is very good and very easy. I found the recipe a few months ago and it has become a staple supper at our house. It's also great to take to potlucks.
