Beef Taco Bake

This is a weeknight dinner - most ingredients you'll have on hand, and it takes no time at all . I adapted the recipe from a Campbell's soup cookbook and inconveniently forgot to buy the soup. I had to improvise with tomato paste, but it ended up just perfect! Enjoy! ~Allison Y.

Beef Taco Bake
Adapted from Campbell's 1-2-3 Dinner

1 pound lean ground beef
1 teaspoon red pepper
1 cup thick and chunky salsa (medium)
1 (4 0z) can diced green chiles
4 tablespoons tomato paste
1 cup milk (I used 1% to cut down calories)
6 large flour tortillas (cut into 1-inch pieces)
1 cup shredded Sharp Cheddar cheese
salt and pepper
sour cream (if desired)

Preheat oven to 400. In a medium skillet, brown beef over medium-high heat. Season with salt and pepper. Drain fat. Add red pepper, salsa, chiles, tomato paste, milk, tortillas, and 1/2 cup cheese. Gently stir until thoroughly combined. Pour mixture into a 2-quart baking dish. Cover and bake for 30 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining cheese before serving.

I suggest serving this with a large dollop of sour cream and and some extra cheese (because you can never have enough cheese haha).
