Taco Dip Bake

Howdy Y'all! I cannot tell you how happy I am to FINALLY have found time to do something for y'all! Student teaching has had me swamped but I took a little break from lesson planning to do something for all my very loyal followers! Since I don't have a lot of time, I decided tonight I would try cooking a recipe I found off Pinterest! All that food looks so WONDERFUL! I decided I would start with someone very simple that you can take to potlucks or even have as a side dish during a football game, etc.

Here is what you'll need: 

* 1/2 lb. ground beef
*1 can re-fried beans
* 1 packet taco seasoning
* 8 oz. sour cream
* 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
* 9x13 pan (or baking dish)
*Fritoes to dip it up with!

The first thing you're going to do is in a medium sized skillet, brown your ground beef. Since I was making two helpings, I just browned 1 lb. then drained it. 

Next, open up that can of re-fried beans and taco seasoning, and add them to the ground beef and stir it real good! This requires a little muscle because when that beef gets to mixing with those beans.. it gets a little tough! (Plus, I added two cans of re-fried beans and two packages of taco seasoning since I was doubling the recipe.. this made it double hard to stir! O_O!)

Spread the meat/bean/taco seasoning mixture in the bottom of your 9x13 pan (or baking dish). Since I was doubling the recipe, I just divided the mixture in half and then added one half to one pan and the other half into my other pan. 

Start pre-heating your oven right about now. Set it at 350!

At first we thought this layer of mixture seemed pretty thin.. but it will be OK! Just make sure you spread it evenly! Ok? Alright...moving on...

Now you're going to top this mixture with sour cream! Yum!

Now for the best part... CHEEEEEESE!!! You're going to add that on top of your sour cream!
Buster and Duke love cheese too!

Put it in the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes (or until cheese is bubbling!)

Tomorrow I am serving this at school for Fat Tuesday! I'll make sure I take pictures of it being enjoyed and update you on how everyone enjoyed it! 

I miss all of y'all and I hope to be back more often!

2/21/2012 - Today my two dishes were almost gone by 12:10!!! I only got a few bites! What I did get to taste though was .. AMAZING!! So I say try this at your next potluck, party or just as a side dish for dinner! Also, I think I might try sprinkling some diced tomatoes on top after I bake it! Good luck! If you end up making this dish and love it.. tell me about it! I love to hear from my readers! 

This is definitely a pin!
