Day 27: My Favorite Recipe

The recipe I decided to share with you guys is Taco Casserole. This is my signature dish. I make it whenever I want to impress someone or for parties and whatnot. It’s a real crowd pleaser.

The recipe I use for this dish is in a cookbook my mom got me when I moved into an apartment. I was too lazy to copy it from the book and decided to search for it online. I’m not sure if the recipe is the same, but they’re pretty close.

This isn’t exactly how I make it. I add pepper and chili powder to the ground beef. I also don’t use corn chips or the sour cream unless I put the sour cream on the side when it’s finished. You can also add tomatoes, lettuce, beans, whatever you like with your tacos on top or the mix.
