Step 3: Turn the heat off and add into the beef the half cup of salsa con queso.
Step 4: Stir well until completely combined.
Step 5: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 350 degrees.
Step 6: With nonstick cooking spray, grease an 8-inch round baking pan.
Step 7: With a flour tortilla, layer the bottom of the prepared pan.
Step 8: On the tortilla, add around ⅓ of the ground beef taco filling and top with ⅓ of the shredded cheese.
Step 9: Do the same until all the layers are filled (tortilla, taco mixture, and cheese).
Step 10: Place inside the preheated oven and bake for about 15 to 20 minutes until the cheese has melted and the edges turned a bit golden brown.
Step 11: Remove from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes before slicing.
If desired, serve this taco bake with sour cream and diced tomatoes on top.
