    Karen=^..^='s Note:

    This came from a bottle of Ortega Taco Sauce. I have been holding onto to this little 2 by 3 inch label with the recipe on it for years, so I figured I better post it before I lose it! If I don't have taco shells, sometimes I use broken tortilla chips. I did tweak it to our tastes a bit. We really enjoy it...hope you do, too.

      Hubby and I liked this for something different from the ordinary taco. We did not use chili's in ours. I would say the servings would be 4 big ones or 6 medium. I am not sure this would serve 8 people. We froze 2 containers for him to take to work for lunch. The fact it has shells right in it makes it an easier lunch for him. I ate mine as a taco salad and he ate his using taco shells to "scoop" it up with. Thanks for the recipe.

      Made this tonight and it was great. I did not have any taco sauce so instead used a can of diced tomatoes and chilies. It's a keeper.

      This was very good. I used Velveeta cheese and it was nice and creamy. Thanks!
