Taco Bake was something I used to make at least once a month. I made it the other night and thought, "now why on Earth did I stop doing this?" It is on the Menu once again. It is super simple, can feed a lot of people, and you can make it in one pan. Here is what you are going to need. Notice there are a lot of optionals. What ever you think would be good will more likely then not be very good in this dish. I make this all up in a cast iron pan that can go from range to oven. If your pan can not go to oven layer your ingredients in a casserole dish of your choice.
