Spicy Mexican Beef Bake

Recipe by DbKnadler
READY IN: 1hr 20mins




  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees farenheit.
  • Cut the roast in small strips (fajita style), and brown it in a hot pan.
  • While the meat is browning shred the cheese, slice the tomatoes, chop the green pepper, and dice the onion.
  • After meat is browned, drain off any fat and add taco seasoning along with a half cup of water. Bring up to a simmer.
  • Once everything is prepared, lightly grease a 13x9 baking dish and layer ingredients starting with tortillas, then a layer of meat, followed by the tomatoes, green peppers, and onions. Repeat layering, reserving the cheese for the top.
  • Cover pan with aluminum foil and bake for 45 minutes Remove foil and continue to bake uncovered for additional 15 mins, until cheese just begins to brown.
  • You could also add a can of bean (black beans or pinto) as an additional layer if you wish. I would have included in the recipe but I don't happen to have any on hand.
