Salsa. We’re talking about salsa. Some like it hot, some not so much. Myself, eldest son, and my father are the latter while my brother, sister, babcia, and mother are the former. That’s why we choose La Victoria Brand.
Some Like it Hot, Some Not So Much
In our house Taco Tuesday is a ritual. At least for most of us. My youngest son Liam’s food aversions prevent him from enjoying any Mexican dishes. Taco Tuesday doesn’t happen unless there’s some La Victoria Salsas to amp up our dinner. Our favorite way to enjoy tacos is a taco bake. Here’s how to make it!
- taco seasoning
- soft tortillas
- tortilla chips (optional)
- shredded cheese
- La Victoria Salsa
- Queso (optional)
Start by cooking up your taco meat. I use two pounds of 80/20 ground chuck, and two packets of taco seasoning. Once it’s cooked, drained, and the sauce added, it’s time to assemble your bake. Set your oven to 350 and grab a round cake pan. Spray a bit of nonstick spray inside. Next, place a soft tortilla. If using queso, spread some on the tortilla, then add taco meat. Next spread some salsa on the meat, and then sprinkle with cheese. Top with soft tortilla. Now repeat these until your meat is used up. Finish the final soft tortilla off with shredded cheese and place in over. It only takes about 10 minutes to bake. That’s it.
(If you want to add crunch, place tortilla chips in between your layers as well.)
My go to is either La Victoria’s Thick N’ Chunky Salsa or their Thick N’ Chunky Salsa Verde both in mild. Sometimes I’ll get medium for just a hint more of heat. They’re so good! So fresh and tasty, it tastes like it was made fresh my own garden. Trust me, if you’re making tacos or my taco bake, you NEED some La Victoria Salsa!
