A variation on Texas toast and cheesy bread. If you have a favorite taco seasoning recipe, try it in the topping mix. I made it one night from stuff I had around, to go with a Mexican-flavored Hamburger Helper (my boyfriend insists on bread with H.H., and I was happy to oblige).

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. *Note* Individual yields will vary, depending on the amount of butter you brush on each bread slice.
  2. Pre heat oven 350.
  3. Melt butter and stir in seasoning mix (you don't have to use the whole packet if it's too much spice for ya). Brush on both sides of bread.
  4. Place on ungreased cookie sheet, and bake 5 minutes. Flip toasts and cheese 'em up. Bake another 3 minutes, or until cheese is as melted or crunchy on top as you like.
  5. Let cool a minute or two before serving. Serve with Mexican flavored Hamburger Helper (there are a few different flavors), with a Tex-Mex dish of your choosing, or as a snack dipped in salsa.

Yum! This was very good! I used the entire packet of taco seasoning, but near the end, the butter/seasoning mixture started getting kind of thick, so I melted an extra tablespoon of butter and stirred it in. I got 10 slices out of the recipe, and we all loved it! Great flavor! Thanks!

Autumn PAC 2006 recipe: This was different than I was expecting! I made a batch of it and my middle daughter looked at me like I was a nut for putting taco seasoning on bread....THEN the picky thing ate a bite, then another and another...She had 3 pieces before I got dinner on the table. Kids LOVED it...DH liked and I would probably use the recipe again. THANKS Christy....I've had fun adopting you for PAC 2006!
