Taco Casserole/ flaming cheese dip.
I just kind of throw thigs together so all amounts are a guess
Cook some noodles, what ever you have really. Set aside
Brown some ground beef, with some red peppers, onions, jalepeno peppers, whatever you have. I have used fresh and jarred with equal success.
Add a packet of taco seasoning and a jar of salsa. Season to taste if you need it. You could add cummin, cayene, chili peppers, green chilis, salt and pepper, garlic, whatever. I usually find it doesn't need much else. Shred up some cheese. I use cheddar, but you could use monterey jack, mozzerella, whatever you have on hand. I use about 2 cups maybe? Throw that in the pan and mix it all up to melt it, and add the noodles and give is a good stir. At this point it is ready to eat, but you could also put it in the oven to keep it warm, or mix up the flavours or whatever. I serve it with a dollop og sour cream and sometimes some chopped up green onions on top.
** this also makes a great party dip if you eliminate the noodles and up the cheese content, and maybe make it a little hotter on the spicy scale. Just serve it with cut up baguettes
