Taco Melts...perfect for teenage appetites!

This is a really simple meal, but it's very filling and your kids (especially teens) will love it.  It makes a great lunch or light supper and you can change it up by adding whatever toppings you usually like on your tacos.  If you make them for a party or a gang of teenagers, just make the basic sandwiches and set out dishes with lettuce, tomatoes, onions, olives, jalapenos, taco sauce, salsa and whatever sauces you like.  I used the jalapeno flavored sauce that is  made byTaco Bell on this sandwich and it was delicious.  It also comes in Chipotle and Spicy Ranchero flavors which sound good also.

Here is all you need:

1 to 2 lbs. ground beef (depending on how many sandwiches you want to make)
1 pkg. taco seasoning
3/4 cup water
sub sandwich rolls
Velveeta cheese slices
shredded cheddar cheese
taco sauce or salsa
Brown the ground beef and add seasoning and water....simmer as for tacos.  Slice sub rolls and toast in the oven slightly.   Add Velveeta cheese slices to the bottom bun, layer taco meat on that and then sprinkle the top with shredded cheddar or you can use Colby or Monterrey Jack.  Run back under broiler for just a few minutes to melt cheese.   Let everyone add their own toppings.  The Velveeta melts and sort of holds the meat and sandwich together, but you could substitute some other sliced cheese if you are not a Velveeta fan or you can use Cheese Whiz also.  These are so good and a change from tacos or nachos. 

You can also do this on a long French bread and slice in serving size pieces for a crowd.
