Calling All Taco Lovers!!!

I must say that we really love tacos in our house, so we are always looking for a new way of eating them. If you're the same, here's a couple for you to try...
Deep-Dish Taco Pizza
1 lb. hamburger meat
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 (15 oz.) can Rotel, drained
1 pkg. Taco seasoning
1 (10 oz.) can refrigerated pizza crust dough
2 cups shredded sharp Cheddar
Salsa (optional)
sour cream (optional)

Preheat oven to 425°. Cook beef and onion in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until beef is browned, stirring to crumble. Drain well, and return beef mixture to pan. Stir in rotel and taco seasoning; cook over medium-high heat 1 minute or until thoroughly heated; set aside. Unroll pizza crust dough. Press into bottom and halfway up sides of a 13 x 9-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Spoon beef mixture over pizza crust dough. Bake at 425° for 12 minutes. Top with cheese, and bake 5 minutes or until cheese melts and edges of crust are browned. Let stand 5 minutes before slicing. Serve warm. Top with salsa and sour cream, if desired.

Taco Cups for the Kiddos!
This is not really a recipe - I just put normal taco meat in Tostito Scoops Chips and top with Sharp Cheddar and put until the broiler until the cheese melts. This was so easy for the kids to pick up and eat! A big hit for sure!!!
