Mexican Layered Casserole

I was diagnosed 2 years ago with insulin resistance.  My doctor put me on a Low Carb diet.  Its been a challenge to say the least.  I have been trying lots of new recipes only to be disappointed in the flavor and overall yumminess of it.  But I have found a few things my family and I really love.  Here's one of them.

Mexican Layered Casserole

1 pound ground beef
1 packet of Taco Seasoning
1/2 med onion
2 gloves garlic
1-1 1/5 block of cream cheese (softened)
Chopped tomato
Chopped Lettuce
Shredded Cheese
Salsa or favorite taco sauce (optional)

Brown Hamburger with onions, and garlic until fully cooked.  Add in taco seasoning mis,  Stir together.  When fully cooked and mixed, pour into square casserole dish and let cool for 5-8 minutes.  Spread softened cream cheese on the top making sure it is spread evenly over the ground beef and covered.  Sprinkle shredded Cheese on top.  Put lettuce and tomatoes over the shredded cheese.  Add salsa or taco sauce if desired.  Refrigerate the leftovers.  

We like to scoop this out and eat with chips or put it on a tortilla.  It is kind of like 7 layered taco dip.  Hope you enjoy.
