  • 9x13 Baking Dish
  • Meat Masher
  • 12-Inch Skillet
  • Silicone Turner


  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 2 tablespoons taco seasoning
  • 4 ounces cream cheese cubed
  • 2 large green bell peppers coarsely chopped
  • 2 medium tomatoes diced
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • 2 cups Mexican cheese
  • 1/2 cup bacon bits


  • In a skillet brown ground beef. Drain and set aside on a paper towel covered plate.
  • Add pepper, onion and tomatoes to a skillet and cook over medium heat until onions and peppers begin to become tender. Much of the liquid, especially from the tomatoes should cook off during this time.
  • Arrange cooked vegetables in the bottom of a 9 x 13 inch baking dish and preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Return ground beef to skillet and sprinkle taco seasoning over the top. Add cubes of cream cheese and stir until everything is cooked.
  • Spoon creamy ground beef layer as evenly as possible over top of the vegetables.
  • Sprinkle cheese and bacon on top and bake for about 10 minutes until the cheese is melted and the dish is warmed through.


  • Use a full block of cream cheese to make this casserole and easier to dip with chips
  • As a dip tastes great served with Doritos or tortilla chips
  • Brown ground beef before adding to casserole
  • Mushrooms can be added
  • Ground beef or hamburger can be substituted for Italian sausage (omit taco seasoning) or plain sausage with taco seasoning added
