Walking Taco Casserole!

If you are not familiar with the 'Walking Taco" concept,  it's an ingenious idea of taking a small bag of corn chips or Doritos and opening it up and putting seasoned taco meat over the chips along with your favorite taco topping...lettuce, taco sauce, tomatoes, onions, cheese on top.  You can then walk around eating this right out of the bag with a fork!  

This skips the whole eating out of the bag idea and turns the same thing into a casserole.   I actually prefer the casserole myself if you are serving this at home.   The true "Walking Taco" in the bag is great for selling at concession stands at ballgames and things like that. 

This casserole is a great idea for teen or preteen gatherings!  It will disappear fast! 

Here is what you will need:

1  1/2 lbs.- 2 lbs. ground beef
1  (1 oz.) pkg taco seasoning
3/4 cup water
1 (15.5) oz. pkg Fritos
3 cups shredded Mexican blend cheese
taco toppings of your choice...taco sauce, diced onions, olives, diced tomatoes, sour cream, guacamole

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray a 9"x13" baking dish with nonstick spray.  Spread half of the Fritos in the bottom of the dish.

In a skillet brown the ground beef, add the taco seasoning and water and mix until blended.  Place 1/2 of the seasoned ground beef over the corn chips and top with half of the shredded cheese.

Repeat the layers, Fritos, taco meat and ending with the rest of the cheese.  Place in a 350 degree oven and bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until the cheese is melted.  To serve set out taco toppings of your choice and let everyone garnish their own serving! 
It's delicious!
