Taco Casserole

So this taco casserole is one of those dinners that I make pretty often at our house. It’s quick and it’s enough to feed the 4 of us and have leftovers too! (This taco casserole also freezes great!) It’s got all the yummy taco toppings inside and you can add in or top it with pretty much anything else you like! Even my 18 month old eats this taco casserole like a champ! It’s layers of cheese, tortillas, and a yummy salsa and sour cream sauce! So here’s how you make it:

Here’s what you need:

  • 1 pound ground beef (you can also use ground turkey)
  • 1 yellow onion (finely chopped)
  • 2 cups of chunky salsa (I use mild since the kids eat it too)
  • 1 (15 ounce) can of black beans (drained)
  • 1 (1 ounce) packet of taco seasoning
  • 4 flour tortillas
  • 1 cup of corn kernels (frozen or canned)
  • 1/2 cup of sour cream
  • 2 cups of shredded cheese
  • Cilantro for garnish (optional)

First thing you’ll want to do is heat your oven to 400 degrees and spray a 9×9 dish with cooking spray. Then chop your onion finely and in a large skillet, cook your meat and your onion together until the meat is no longer pink. Taco CasseroleDrain your meat if needed and then turn off the heat and in the same skillet, add in your salsa, sour cream, beans, corn, and taco seasoning. Taco Casserole

It’ll look like this after you’ve stirred everything together. Taco CasseroleNow for the layering! Take a spoonful of your meat mixture and spread it in the bottom of the pan, then sprinkle with cheese and add a tortilla on next. Taco Casserole

Keep layering until your reach the top. Meat, cheese, tortilla, meat, cheese, tortilla….You get it 🙂 When you get to the top, end with a tortilla and sprinkle a layer of cheese on top. Taco Casserole

Now take a piece of aluminum foil and spray it with cooking spray and cover the top of your dish (sprayed side down). Bake at 400 for 30 minutes. When you take it out of the oven, let it sit for about 10 minutes before serving. I like to serve mine with tortilla chips to scoop up all the yummy meat mixture that falls out! Enjoy!!Taco Casserole

    Tried this recipe a few nights ago. It turned out so yummy! I do have one question, did you drain/rinse the black beans before adding them?
