This Mexican Taco Bake is made with ground beef, diced tomatoes, black beans, corn, onions, bell peppers, seasonings, and lots of cheese.
This is a Tex-Mex dish that really is comfort food to me. I absolutely love the end product, especially when you serve yourself and the melted cheese pulls. You can modify this any way you prefer and serve with tortillas or tortilla chips. This is absolutely kid friendly and can feed a family of 6 people.
How to make Mexican Taco Bake
In a large cast-iron skillet over medium high heat, add the oil and wait for it to shimmer. Add the onions, bell peppers, and cook until soft, about 5 minutes.
Stir in the ground beef and cook, breaking it apart with a wooden spoon, until no longer pink, about 10 minutes. Add the chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, crushed red pepper flakes, oregano, paprika, ground cumin, salt and pepper, and stir to combine.
Pour in the diced tomatoes, corn, black beans and bring to a simmer. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes, until liquid has reduced.
Sprinkle the cheese over the meat mixture, cover, then turn the heat off and leave for a few minutes for the cheese to melt.
Serve with avocado, cilantro, and tortillas.
