Aw! Come on! Favorite Recipe? Don't we all know by now that ZIN doesn't COOK? She avoids it like the plague? That she'd rather be boiled in oil than go into a kitchen and play nice with that demonic stove? *sigh* Okay rant over. So if you didn't know, you do now that I don't cook. But being the good sport that I am, I decided to beg my sister in giving me her recipe for my favorite dish. The one I always ask her to make anytime she visits. The last time she visited she asked what I wanted for supper, and before I could answer she gave me the look and said, "I'm not making Taco Bake for you. Pick something else." Of course, I crossed my arms over my chest and asked in my best five year old voice, "but why?" Good thing my sister loves me or I'd have been wearing the soda she was carrying.
While I didn't get my Taco Bake that night. Maybe someone will be nice and deliver it to my house, if I put it up here....what...you're not going to do it....fine, but I'm still putting it up.
And yes I cheated. Or my sister did. This is the same recipe you'll find on the back of the bisquik box...or so my sister tells me. Recipe taken from the Betty Crocker Site. It can be found HERE
