Taco Bake

I decided to make this taco bake for my husband and his friend for their weekly get together of college football, gaming, and whatever else. It is always quite the hit with these guys!


1 pound ground beef
1 can tomato sauce
1 pound pasta of your choice (I prefer rotini for this dish)
1 cup sour cream
1 8 oz package cream cheese (brought to room temperature)
2+ cups of your favorite cheese (I use a Monterrey jack and cheddar cheese mixture)
Black pepper, onion powder and garlic powder

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Cook pasta according to package instructions and drain well
Crumble and brown hamburger, drain grease
Place meat mixture back in pan, mix with tomato sauce and taco seasoning. Simmer while you mix the sour cream/cream cheese mixture

In a separate bowl whisk cream cheese with a couple dashes of pepper, garlic powder and onion powder. Mix in sour cream

Mix pasta and meat mixture together and pour into 9x13 pan
Spread cream cheese/sour cream mixture on top of the pasta
Top with as much cheese as you feel is necessary

Bake for about 20 minutes until hot and cheese is melted

I like plenty of hot sauce on it!

No pictures of after it was cooked because, well, it looked the same except the cheese was melted.

YUM! I forgot about Taco Bake - I need to make some of this ASAP. My recipe is a little different than this one, I may try yours though!

this is not trashy, this is HEAVENLY SENT.

If you dont' feel like pasta, you can also layer corn tortillas with meat, cheese, beans, enchilada sauce, top it with cheese, and bake 20-30 mins at 350. Makes sort of a modified Chilaquilles/Lasagna dish. Serve with salsa and sour cream.

Oooh I'm totally making this! Only I think I will add a layer of beans in the bottom.

Yeah, I was thinking that a layer of beans would be awesome! Too bad that neither of the guys particularly care for beans.

It's like a taco lasagna! I want it so bad.
