Ortega Taco Bake

Ortega Taco Bake created by MoAdams

This came from a bottle of Ortega Taco Sauce. I have been holding onto to this little 2 by 3 inch label with the recipe on it for years, so I figured I better post it before I lose it! If I don't have taco shells, sometimes I use broken tortilla chips. I did tweak it to our tastes a bit. We really enjoy it...hope you do, too.

    I used shredded chicken instead of ground beef. Also, I didn't have green chilies, but I did have green enchilada sauce, so I used half a can of that and added a few sliced jalapenos that I diced. Then I added a small can of sliced olives to the mixture and a handful of frozen corn. It was delicious! I have made it the way the recipe says before, and both ways are yummy!

    Made this tonight and it was great. I did not have any taco sauce so instead used a can of diced tomatoes and chilies. It's a keeper.
