This is from a dinner kit from Old El Paso called Soft Tacobake.  Personally it looks like Mexican Lasagna to me.  You do it the same way you would do taco meat frying the hamburger, draining and then putting your season mix, but I did a little Moody twist.  I also added chopped garlic cloves, a sliced/chopped tomato, a chopped purple onion, and one chopped cucumber.  Yes, this is all with the meat.  Plus added my own spices to the meat (garlic & onion powder, celery salt, pepper).

After which I preheated the oven to 350 degrees, and then I took one of the soft tortilla and put it in an ungreased 9″ glass pie dish and then I put a 1/2 cup of my meat mixture and there’s a cheese pouch in with the dinner kit and put some of that on top of the meat and repeated until I had four layers.  On the very top I put a couple of slices of cheese, and this is what I got besides 2 very full bellies with just 1/4 of this pie pan.  WOW!   It was really tasty.

I am loving my new Salad Spinner.  I have never had one before to tell you the truth, so I’m really excited about it.   Let me tell you about it first before I show you my little video I made.  This Ozeri Greenearth Salad Spinner that was designed in Switzerland by the way, and also it is BPA FREE!

This Salad Spinner has two functions in one! It’s a large Colander (4.2 qt / 4L) easily spins a variety of salad greens and herbs.  The 5.5 qt/5.2L bowl provides a clear view while spinning and functions as a serving bowl.  Isn’t that neat!!!  Now just one thing before I turn you on to my video.  I stated that once you spin the lettuce you take the colander out and put the lettuce in the clear bowl.  (Sorry, it’s been bugging me), you actually take the colander out dump the water etc. out of the bowl and then you put your lettuce in.  There! Now I feel better! ~hehehe~  Now to our video…

So whatcha think?  I think that everyone that sees my new bowl is going to think, “Gee, I think Marie really knows what she’s doing”!  ~hehe~  Thanks Ozeri!  You’re duh best!
