Mexican Grabbits

You are probably wondering what they heck they are!  Well, wonder no more.  Mexican Grabbits are a tasty version of meatloaf on a corn shell with a Mexican twist.  When my mom first made this recipe for us, she used mini taco shells.  Old El Paso doesn’t make those anymore so we’ve had to improvise. 

We now normally make them using Tostitoes Big Scoops, but tonight I decided to change it up a bit and made them in regular size taco shells.  They turned out pretty good and here’s how you can try them out for yourself!

Here’s what you need:

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 can rotel
  • 1 egg
  • Bread crumbs
  • Taco shells or tortilla chips

the ingredients

Here’s what you do:

Mix all the ingredients together except for the shells or chips.

mix it together

Pop them in the oven at 375 for 25 minutes.  Flip them over to the other side and back for an additional 25 minutes.  If you are making them on the chips you’ll of course adjust and reduce your cooking time.

bake them

After baking let them cool just a bit and then they are ready to eat!

done

We usually serve ours with hot sauce and sour cream but there are lots of options!
