Ingredients

  • 1 pound lean ground beef (90% lean)
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 2 envelopes taco seasoning, divided
  • 2 cups fat-free sour cream
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cups shredded iceberg lettuce
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 3 medium tomatoes, finely chopped
  • 1 medium green pepper, finely chopped
  • 1 can (2-1/4 ounces) sliced ripe olives, drained

Directions

  • In a large skillet, cook and crumble beef over medium heat until no longer pink, 4-6 minutes; drain. Add water and one envelope taco seasoning; cook until thickened. Cool slightly.
  • Beat sour cream, cream cheese and remaining taco seasoning until blended. Spread in a 3-qt. dish; add ground beef. Top with lettuce, cheddar, tomatoes, pepper and olives.

Test Kitchen Tips
  • Sharp cheddar cheese has been aged longer than regular cheddar. As cheese ages, its flavor becomes more pronounced. Using aged cheese in a recipe can add complexity and rich flavor, even to humble favorites like mac ’n’ cheese.
  • Using lean ground beef instead of beef that’s 80% lean saves 45 calories per 4-ounce serving of beef. Lean ground beef is also 29% lower in saturated fat.
