Preparation:

1. Sauté garlic, onion, and beef. Add water, salt, and hot sauce. Simmer for 5 minutes. Add DEL MONTE Sweet Style Spaghetti Sauce, 1/4 cup olives and bell pepper. Simmer for 5 minutes. Set aside.

2. Layer half of taco on bottom of greased 12 x 8-inch pan. Cover with half of spaghetti sauce mixture and cheese. Repeat layering with the remaining ingredients. Bake in pre-heated oven at 350°F for 10 minutes. Top with remaining olives, tomatoes, and green onions. Serve.

Chef’s Tip:

For better texture, lightly toast the taco shells in a toaster oven before layering so that they are drier and crispier.
