Lisa’s Tacos


This is a recipe that Lisa got from Girl Scouts or something when she was in elementary school.  She made it several times for us.  Now I am going to make it with her daughter.

1 pound ground beef                                             Sauce:
½ onion, chopped                               1 16 oz cans stewed tomatoes
2 t. chile powder                                 1½ tsp crushed oregano
1 clove garlic, minced                         1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
3 C tortilla chips, lightly crushed       ½ tsp salt
2 C shredded cheese                           ¼ tsp pepper
2 C shredded lettuce

Preheat oven to 350°.

Cook beef and onion with seasonings until brown.  Drain fat. 

Place crushed chips in a glass pie plate or small casserole dish.  Cover with beef, then cheese. 

Bake in oven for 20 minutes or until heated through.  Serve with shredded lettuce and sauce.
