Recipe adapted from Company’s Coming: Rush-Hour Recipes
1 lbs lean ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped red pepper
1/2 cup chopped green pepper
1 can refried beans
1 can diced green chilies
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp paprika
1 loaf French bread, cut in half lengthwise
1/2 cup diced tomato
1/4 cup sliced green onion
1 cup grated cheddar
Scramble fry ground beef and onion in medium frying pan for about 5 minutes until beef is no longer pink. Add both peppers. Saute for 2 minutes. Drain.
Add refried beans, green chilies and spices. Cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring often, until heated through.
Divide and spread beef mixture on each loaf half. Transfer to ungreased baking sheet.
Divide and sprinkle tomato, green onion and cheese over beef mixture. Broil about 8″ from heat for 1-2 minutes until hot and cheese is melted. Slice loaf into 6-8 pieces for each loaf.
I might not eat tacos the usual way again after trying them this way, they were so good and easy to make. Tony loved them, he said this was his new favourite dinner. Cole just played with his food, he dumped off all the toppings and ended up just eating the bread. Sigh. Bennett enjoyed it a lot once I cut it up into little pieces for him so it was easier for him to eat. We ate one half of the loaf, so I froze the other half to enjoy for dinner another time. Can’t wait!
