1 pkg

Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat oven to 375ยบ. Cook the ground beef in a 10-inch skillet over medium heat, stirring frequently, until browned and crumbly, about 5 minutes. Drain. Reduce heat to low. Stir in the frozen pepper stir-fry, 1/2 cup water and the taco seasoning. Simmer for 5 minutes longer.

Bake until the crust is golden brown and cheese is melted, 15-20 minutes. Cut into squares. serve immediately with the lettuce and tomatoes, if desired.
