Sometimes you revisit a recipe after not making it for years and you wonder why it fell out of your rotation. Case in point: Layered Taco Bake. Or Taco Pie. Or Taco Lasagna. Whatever you want to call it, this is one of the simplest recipes you could prepare when you get a craving for tacos but don’t want to fuss with assembling them (and, if you are like me, overstuffing them and having half the filling falling out on the plate 😉 )
This recipe came back to me as I pondered a recipe for my boys’ virtual cooking club for tacos. I figured why not do something a little different, remembering this recipe that I used to make regularly years ago. I couldn’t find my original recipe but took stock of the ingredients I had on hand and realised these are a perfect recipe to make when you are cooking mostly from your pantry, fridge and freezer. Indeed, the only ingredients I needed to get were the tortillas.
And was it as good as I remembered?
Yes! So good I made a little video about it (actually I made a version for my students but figured it was useful to share here too!).
This is a great recipe to prepare in advance – uses only one baking dish and one pan so it’s easy on the cleanup too. By the time it’s cooked, your kitchen will be clean.
What about you – is there a recipe that you have recently re-discovered?
