Add your favorite toppings, such as shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, black olives, sour cream, more cheese, guacamole, etc.

Taco Salad - Making a taco salad is just like making nachos, with the exception of the tortilla chips and the microware time. Instead of covering a platter with chips, cover it with chopped or shredded lettuce. Top with Awesome Taco Beef, cheese, and then add your favorite toppings and you'll have a delicious Mexican seasoned salad in no time at all.

Quesadillas - Preheat a non-skillet over medium high heat. Fold a flour tortilla in half. Spoon Awesome Taco Beef into the tortilla and top with cheese. Spray the skillet with Pam or add a little olive oil. Brown the tortilla on both sides for a super quesadilla. This tastes great as is, and is even better with a side of salsa, sour cream, or guacamole.

Enchiladas - Spoon Awesome taco beef into the center of a corn tortilla. Add cheese if you like. Fold the tortilla and place in a casserole dish with the fold down. Continue adding stuffed corn tortillas to the casserole dish until it is full. Pour a can of enchilada sauce over the tortillas, top with a little extra cheese, and bake in a 350 degree preheated over for approximately 45 minutes, or until bubbly. If you don't want to use canned enchilada sauce, you can make your own.
