Mexican Delight

Recipe by RecipeLove

This is a recipe my mother has made for years that she had gotten from a friend. If I knew where she had gotten it I would certainly give them credit! I wasn't sure about how many servings, but it makes a good amount. As far as the amount of toppings, I just estimated...everyone likes a different amount of lettuce, olives and cheese etc. I look forward to hearing what you think of it or what you did differently!

I can't believe that I found this recipe when I was searching for a new Mexican dish. I have been preparing this recipe since I was in college (30+ years ago) when a friend's mom gave it to my roommates and me as a great recipe for a crowd. Now it's a favorite of my oldest son and his wife, and my middle son who is in college. It is a great dish. Just set up the toppings and let your guests customize their dish to their liking. A sure winner.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine garlic clove, chopped onion and ground beef. Brown and drain in large skillet.
  2. Add tomato sauce, paste, water (I just use the empty tomato sauce can to measure the water) chili powder, oregano, seasoning salt, salt, sugar, Tabasco sauce, and pepper. Simmer 30 minutes.
  3. Add 1 cup cooked white rice, stir.
  4. Layer Frito's on a plate (a little will go a long way!) and top with meat mixture, then cheese and so forth with additional toppings (lettuce, tomatoes, green onions, avacado, sour cream).
  5. Enjoy!
