Ingredients:

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 package taco seasoning
  • 1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 envelope Fleischmann’s® RapidRise Yeast
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons butter OR margarine
  • 2 eggs
  • 1-1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup diced red bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup diced green onion
  • 3/4 cup crushed tortilla chips
  • Salsa, guacamole and/or sour cream for garnish, optional

Directions:

Brown ground beef in a large skillet until cooked through; drain.  Prepare taco meat according to taco seasoning mix directions.  Set aside.

Combine 1 cup flour, undissolved yeast, sugar, baking soda and salt in a large bowl.  Heat milk, water and butter to very warm (120° to 130°F).  Pour into flour mixture; add eggs.  Beat for 30 seconds with electric mixer to combine.  Increase speed to high and beat for 3 minutes.

Stir in remaining 3/4 cup flour to make a stiff batter.  Stir in cheese, bell pepper and green onion.  Spoon half the batter into a greased 8 x 8-inch pan; top with taco meat.  Dollop remaining batter over the taco meat.  Cover with plastic wrap that has been sprayed with cooking spray and let rise in a warm, draft free place 40 minutes or until doubled.

Top with tortilla chips.  Bake in preheated 375°F oven for 30 to 35 minutes or until golden brown.  Serve hot and top with salsa, guacamole and/or sour cream, if desired.
