TACO BAKE
Crust:
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon Taco Seasoning
8 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded (2 cups)

Put all of the crust ingredients in a large bowl and mix with a wooden spon until smooth. Grease a 9 x 13″ baking dish; spread the cheese mixture evenly over the bottom. Bake at 350 degrees, 35 minutes or until browned, but not too dark. Let stand 5-10 minutes before adding the topping.

Topping:
1 pound ground beef
3 teaspoons Taco Seasoning
1/4 cup tomato sauce
4 ounce can chopped green chiles
8 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded, 2 cups

Brown the hamburger; drain the fat. Stir in the seasoning, tomato sauce and chiles. Spread over the crust. Top with the cheese. Reduce the oven to 350ē and bake another 20 minutes or so until hot and bubbly. Serve with the toppings of your choice (add additional carbs).
