Ingredients

For the taco seasoning:

  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne (optional, can add more/less to taste)

For the rest of the dish:

  • 1 pound ground beef (we used 85/15)
  • 1/3 cup onion, diced
  • 1 jalapeno, minced
  • 5 eggs
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend (or cheddar)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a round pie plate with nonstick cooking spray, and set aside for now.
  • Prepare the taco seasoning. Mix all the spices together in a small bowl and set aside.
  • Place a skillet over medium heat, and spray with just a little cooking spray. Add the ground beef, onion, and jalapeno. Cook, stirring and breaking meat apart every few minutes, until beef is browned. If needed, drain off excess fat (leave a little as it will help the spices blend with the meat).
  • Mix in the spice blend and cook for another 1-2 minutes, then pour the beef mixture into your prepared pie plate.
  • In a mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs and heavy cream. Slowly pour over the beef mixture so it sinks into the meat. Top casserole with cheese.
  • Place in the oven and bake for 30 to 35 minutes at 350 degrees, or until the casserole has set. Allow the dish to rest about 5 minutes before slicing.
  • Serve as-is, or with toppings like salsa, sour cream, guacamole, etc. Enjoy!
