Taco Grande

My cousin earned a purple ribbon at the county fair for this yummy recipe, which I copied straight from our family beef cookbook.


Taco Grande

  • 1 pound hamburger
  • 1 package taco seasoning
  • 12 oz. salsa
  • (8) 6-inch flour tortillas
  • 2 cups shredded colby-monterrey jack cheese
  • 1 green onion, sliced
  • lettuce
  • tomato
  • sour cream
  1. Preheat oven to 350°.  Spray 9×9 (or similar-sized) baking dish with cooking spray.  A round dish makes for very pretty presentation!
  2. Brown hamburger.  Drain.
  3. Add taco seasoning and 2/3 cup water.  Simmer for 10 minutes.  Remove from heat.  Stir in 1 cup salsa.
  4. Arrange 4 tortillas in the bottom and up the sides of the baking dish.  (Tortillas will overlap on bottom but not all of the sides need to be covered.)
  5. Spoon meat mixture evenly over tortillas.  Sprinkle with 1 cup of cheese and 1/2 of the onion.
  6. Top with remaining 4 tortillas, overlapping slightly to create a scalloped edge effect.  Press tortillas down over filling.
  7. Spread remaining salsa over tortillas.  Sprinkle with remaining cheese and onion.
  8. Bake 30 minutes.  Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
  9. Garnish with lettuce, tomato, and sour cream.

  23. After reading Cinco de Mayo recipes all day I had to make this. It turned out grrreat. Definitely a keeper. Also my husband says it gets extra stars for easy cleanup. Only used a skillet, pie pan and cutting board. Also I got to say ‘Taco GRANDE’ a lot. Thanks!
