Taco on a Platter

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Dreamer in Ontario

DH loves Mexican and requests it often. This recipe is from Company's Coming Greatist Hits Mexican. It's a good way to eat tacos without all the mess (even though it may not be authentic). You can make the beef sauce a day ahead and refrigerate it. Just heat thoroughly before assembling.

YUMMY! I used Recipe #251169 instead of tomatoes so it provided a great zip. I also added fat free sour cream and omitted rice and olives. Sort of an upscale frito pie :) I also served/layered on individual plates versus on large platter.
