It’s the end of college football season. All the big dogs will be playing this weekend. It’s Christmas at our house! While we watch all the games, I make lots of snacks for us. These Taco Ranch Bits are on the agenda! Taco Meat, Ranch Dressing, Cheese, Diced Tomatoes, Green Chiles, and Cheese baked in phyllo Tarts. Seriously delicious! These were delicious! This weekend, I cannot wait to try it again!

Cook ground beef in a skillet until it is no longer pink. Drain the fat.
Mix in taco seasoning, diced tomatoes, and green chiles. Stir for five minutes. Turn off the heat.
