    Heat oil in skillet set over medium-high heat; add beef and sauté for 3 to 5 minutes or until cooked through. Stir in taco seasoning, 3/4 cup (175 mL) salsa and 1/2 cup (125 mL) water; lower heat to medium and simmer for 10 to 12 minutes or until sauce is thickened.

    Meanwhile, cut loaf crosswise into slices without cutting all the way through loaf; rotate loaf 90 degrees and repeat slicing in other direction to make checkered pattern, keeping loaf intact. Combine melted butter, parsley and garlic; brush all over loaf, making sure to brush inside cuts.

    Place loaf on prepared pan. Fill bread pockets with beef mixture and cheese. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until cheese is melted and golden. Remove from oven and sprinkle with green onions. Serve with remaining salsa and sour cream on the side.
