Stacked Tacos

This post may contain affiliate links. Read our disclosure policy.

These stacked tacos are another recipe that I have been using for years.  I actually got it from a KSL noon news broadcast in 1997.  It was shared during the broadcast by Alisa Bangerter, who still shares recipes and ideas on the KSL  Studio 5 show.  It has been a family favorite since I first made it.  This recipe makes a ton.  I am able to get 2 meals from one recipe.  I just save the meat mixture in a freezer bag and freeze for another night when I need something easy.  You can even extend the recipe more by only making the stack with 2 layers instead of 3.  If I do that, then I can get 3 meals from this recipe.

The original recipe called for corn tortillas, but I have adapted the recipe to use flour ones instead.  I am a big corn tortilla fan, but I actually really like it with the flour tortillas.  The recipe is similar to a Mexican pizza.  Of course, you can also add whatever additional topping you like, but I think the ones listed in the recipe are essential.

Ingredients
  

  • 2 lbs. ground beef
  • 2 8 oz. cans of tomato sauce
  • 2 14.5 oz. diced tomatoes (I like to use the diced tomatoes with stuff in them, I usually use the kind with the onion in them)
  • 2 cups salsa I use mild, but adjust the spiciness to your liking by using medium or hot
  • 1 can condensed tomato soup
  • 2 Tbsp taco seasoning
  • 30 fajita sized flour tortillas
  • grated cheddar cheese
  • chopped lettuce
  • sliced olives
  • sour cream

Instructions
 

  • Brown ground beef in a skillet and drain.
  • In a large soup pot, add tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, salsa, tomato soup, and taco seasoning.  Stir well.  Add ground beef, mix in, and allow mixture to simmer for 1 hour to blend flavors. (the mixture will be quite soupy)
  • Heat a small amount of cooking oil in a skillet.  Pan fry each tortilla in hot oil until brown and crisp.  Drain on paper towel.
  • To serve: place a tortilla shell on each plate.  add 1/4 cup of saucy meat mixture on each tortilla.  Sprinkle with cheese.  Place another tortilla on top.  Place 1/4 cup sauce and cheese on that tortilla.  Repeat one more time.  You should now have a stack of 3 layers.  Then top with lettuce, olives, and a dollop of sour cream.  Makes 10 stacked tacos.

Notes

*The saucy meat mixture freezes well.  I use half  for one meal and freeze the other half for another night.
