I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Taco Stack

This Taco Stack is an easy meal for Taco Tuesday or taco any day. And if you are in Covid19 isolation and don't have all the ingredients then I have included plenty of substitutes. Like, if you don't have tortillas you can use pitas. Then, instead of Taco Tuesday it could be a Pita Party. But don't invite me to your pita party...don't invite anyone!! We're in self isolation!!! 
8 small tortillas (or large ones, or pitas, split)
1 lb ground beef (or pork, chicken or turkey)
1 onion chopped (or green pepper, or leave it out)
2 tbsps taco seasoning (or make your own, recipe link below)
1/2 cup refried beans (or leave them out)
1 cup black beans (or kidney or pinto or whatever)
You can even substitute kernel corn for the beans
1  1/2 cups salsa (or canned tomatoes and jalapeƱo peppers)
a couple of squirts sriracha sauce (or any hot sauce)
3/4 cup shredded cheese (Monterey Jack, cheddar, mozzarella)

Brown the beef in a skillet then add the onion and cook until onion is tender. Add the taco seasoning and remove from heat. Stir in the black beans, sriracha, 1/2 cup salsa and 1/4 cup cheese.

To start the stack spoon some salsa into the bottom of a baking dish. This will keep the tortilla from sticking. Lay a tortilla on top.
Roughly divide the meat in the pan into 6 portions (or 8 if not using refried beans) Add 1/6 of the meat mixture on top of the first tortilla. Add another tortilla and more meat.
After a couple of meat layers add 1/2 the refried beans (or more meat if not using refried beans) and continue stacking... a couple of meat layers and a refried bean layer.
End with meat on top then ladle the rest of the salsa on.
And the rest of the cheese piled high!
Bake at 375°F for 25-30 minutes then let stand for 10 minutes before slicing.
Great with a side of salad!
Serves 4
