Here's a slight twist on the traditional taco casserole recipe. The cheesy potatoes add another level of flavor to the tasty beef and seasoned cheese. Run for the border indeed! ½ pound ground beef 1 package au gratin potatoes 2 ¼ cups boiling water 2/3 cup milk 1 cup shredded taco-seasoned cheese 1 cup coarsely broken tortilla chips Directions Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cook beef in 10-inch skillet over medium heat 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until brown; drain. Mix uncooked potatoes, sauce mix, boiling water and milk in ungreased 2-quart round casserole.
Stir in beef and ½ cup of cheese. Bake uncovered 30 minutes or until top is light golden brown. Sprinkle chips over casserole; sprinkle remaining cheese over chips.
Bake 3 to 5 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Let stand 2 minutes before serving. .
