Beef and Cheese Taco Bowls

tacobowls

It’s guilty pleasure time.  You’ll hear no claims from me that this is a healthy meal, but it’s great for something quick to serve to a football watching crowd or when you just have a nacho or taco craving.  The following quantities make two large or three small servings.

Three large handfuls Tostitos or your favorite tortilla chips
½ pound ground beef
4 Tbsp. salsa plus more for serving
¼ cup chopped onion or shallot
Seasoned salt, such as Lawry’s
½ cup shredded Mexican cheese
1 Tbsp. olive oil

Saute the onions in the oil in a skillet.  Add the ground beef.  Season with Lawry’s.  When meat is nearing doneness, add four tablespoons salsa and mix together.  Finish browning meat.  Put one handful of tortilla chips in the bottom of each bowl to be served.  Spoon ground beef over chips.  Top with shredded cheese and melt the cheese.  Serve with more salsa on the side to be added to taste.

Quick Beef Calzones

This is a quick, filling meal or snack. Great for football watching or movie night at home!
I put together this recipe as I went and it turned out well.  I froze half the calzones and
would definitely make this again.

½ pound ground beef
2 shallots, finely chopped (or use ¼ cup chopped onion)
1 large clove of garlic, minced
1 cup prepared tomato pasta sauce such as marinara
1 cup shredded cheese (recommend mozzarella, fontina, gruyere or a packaged Italian
mix)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 roll refrigerated pizza dough
1 egg
cooking spray

Preheat the oven to 425.  Unroll pizza dough onto a cookie sheet coated with cooking spray.  Cut the dough into six evenly-sized squares.  Sautee shallots in olive oil for 1-2 minutes.  Add ground beef and cook until thoroughly browned.  Add tomato sauce and cheese, mix thoroughly and remove from heat. Lightly brush the edges of each dough square with water with a basting brush.  Spoon around ¼ cup meat filling into the center of each square, leaving a border of dough all the way around.

Stretch dough over filling and use the tines of a fork to seal the edges.  Beat an egg and using a basting brush, lightly brush each calzone with egg.  Bake for 6-8 minutes, or until calzones are golden brown and dough is thoroughly cooked.  Serve with warm marinara sauce for dipping.
