Beefy Queso Bake

This is total comfort food for Nathan. He loves Mexican food and I'm always on the lookout for new ways to fix Mexican food. I knew he'd love this dish. It's definitely not health food, but every now and then you need a little comfort food. I saw this idea over at The Country Cook. Nate loved it, he rated it a 10 out of 10. Enjoy!

1 pound ground beef
1 packet taco seasoning and the water it calls for
4 large flour tortillas (8-inch size)
1/2 cup queso (we like the Tostito's brand salsa con queso)
1 green pepper, diced
1/2 medium onion, diced
1 1/2-2 cups shredded cheese

Brown and crumble ground beef. Add diced vegetables, taco seasoning, and water. Simmer until the liquid is absorbed. Once ready, add 1/2 cup queso. Stir well and then heat through. Spray your baking dish with non-stick spray. Place a tortilla in the bottom of the baking dish. Spread 1/3 of the meat mixture over the tortilla. Top with a little shredded cheese. Lay another tortilla down, followed by meat mixture, and then cheese. Repeat once more then top with last tortilla. Top with remaining cheese. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until cheese is melted and edges of the tortillas are a light golden brown. Let stand for 5 minutes and then slice and serve hot! Serve with salsa, pico de gallo, sour cream, salad, etc.
