Taco Sandwich

When my older kids were still at home, we used to eat taco's at least twice a week, sometimes even 3 (they were served different ways, but the idea was pretty much the same). THE reason why I served them so often is because they are fast and easy and take little thinking (on my part) when I'm asked the question, "Whats for dinner Mom". BUT now that I have hundreds of yummy recipes and ideas to choose from...we don't have them hardly ever. When I ran across this recipe, I thought it was such a creative idea and yet ONE MORE way I could serve taco's when I choose to serve them. I knew the family would like them because WE LOVE anything Mexican...SO I gave this Taco Sandwich a whirl and it was a huge hit. Can't beat and EASY, MOUTHWATERING taco, for lunch or dinner, when your in a hurry!!!

Taco Sandwich
1 lb ground beef
1 package taco seasoning
1/2 loaf french bread
4 oz cream cheese, softened
1/4 c. salsa
1 c. shredded lettuce
1 large tomato, diced
1-2 c. grated shredded cheese

Cook meat with taco seasoning, until done. Drain grease. Cut french bread in half (your only using half...this will make approximately 3-4 good sized sandwiches...to use the entire loaf you will need to double the recipe for other ingredient as well), save the other half for another recipe of your choice. Cut bread (the half that your using for this recipe) in half lengthwise; hollow out top and bottom of loaf, leaving 1/2 inch shell. Discard inside pieces. In a small mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and salsa until blended. Spread on the inside of bread shell, top and bottom. Set aside. Layer lettuce and tomato on the bottom of bread shell, top with meat and cheese. Replace the top to form a sandwich. ENJOY!
