Recipe: Deep Dish Taco Squares

Saturday, September 6th, 2014

Several years ago, I had some fresh tomatoes that needed to be used up before they spoiled.  Since we don’t particularly like raw tomatoes, I was searching for a way to use them that we’d enjoy when I happened across this recipe in a church cookbook that I have.   I tried it and we loved it!  In fact, it was so tasty that several weeks later when I got hungry for it again and didn’t have any fresh tomatoes, I improvised and made it using canned, diced tomatoes.  That was good too and works well for those days when you simply don’t have fresh ones on hand.

This Deep Dish Taco Squares is one of those comfort food sort of dishes….hearty, creamy and just plain delicious.  An added bonus is that it’s always a hit with our children too and they don’t even like tomatoes.  Score!

Deep Dish Taco Squares

1/2 lb. ground beef
2 Tbsp. onion, chopped
1/2 c. sour cream
1/4 c. mayo
1/2. shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1 c. Bisquick (or use my homemade version)
1/4 c. cold water
2 tomatoes, diced* (or more if preferred)
paprika (optional)

Brown ground beef and onion.  Mix sour cream, mayo, cheese and garlic powder..  Set aside.  Combine Bisquick and water to form soft dough.  Press into the bottom of a greased 8×8 baking dish.  (It helps to make your hands slightly damp to do this!)  Top with cooked ground beef then the tomatoes, then the sour cream mixture.  Sprinkle with paprika if desired.  Bake at 375° for 25 to 30 minutes.* I’ve sometimes subbed 1 can of diced tomatoes.  Just be sure to drain it really well!

35 Inexpensive Zucchini Recipes

Saturday, August 23rd, 2014

I love zucchini!  Not only is it delicious, it’s also incredibly versatile as you’ll notice from the variety in these recipes.  The thing is, if you planted zucchini, there’s a good chance that you have more of it than you know what to do with.  So I thought it would be fun to do a little round-up of some of the delicious zucchini recipes that I’ve found around the web.

As for me?  I skipped planting zucchini this year since the last two years that I tried to grow it, my plants ended up getting a blight and I hardly got any zucchini from them.  So I’m having fun trying these recipes using zucchini that some of my friends shared with me.  And I just might have to actually buy some too so that I can enjoy more of it’s deliciousness!
