Why I Love This Recipe
Tastes just like a taco. Loaf is a novel idea—a pleasing change from typical tortillas. You can chop the peppers, tomato and green onion while the ground beef is cooking. Grating the cheese directly over the loaves saves time and clean up.
Ingredients You'll Need
Lean ground beef 1 lb.
Chopped onion 1/2 cup
Chopped green pepper 1/2 cup
Chopped red pepper 1/2 cup
Jar of bean dip 9 oz.
Can of diced green chilies 4 oz.
Envelope of taco seasoning mix 1 1/4 oz.
French bread loaf, cut in half lengthwise
Diced tomato 1/2 cup
Sliced green onion 1/4 cup
Grated Cheddar (or mozzarella or 1 cup
Monterey Jack With Jalapeño) cheese
Scramble-fry ground beef and onion in medium frying pan for about 5 minutes until beef is no longer pink. Add both peppers. Sauté for 2 minutes. Drain.
Add bean dip, green chilies and taco seasoning. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring often, until heated through.
Divide and spread beef mixture on each loaf half. Transfer to ungreased baking sheet.
Divide and sprinkle tomato, green onion and cheese over beef mixture. Broil about 8 inches from heat for 1 to 2 minutes until hot and cheese is melted.
Each half cuts into 6 to 8 pieces, for a total of 12 to 16 pieces.
