Easy Taco Casserole

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Mamas Kitchen Hope

This is what I would serve at a typical supper here at my house when I am pressed for time and need something fast and filling. I have used ground turkey or ground chicken with great results but there is no reason that you could not use plain old ground beef. Hope you like it!

Great dish. I used baked Tostitos, thats what I had on hand and topped each servicing with fat free sour cream for those who wanted it. Simple and delicious. Thanks Mama!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown meat, onion and garlic in large skillet until no pink remains and onion is clear. Drain grease.
  2. Add spices, tomatoes, beans and corn and mix well.
  3. Continue to cook over medium heat until some of the liquid has evaporated. You want a little liquid but not alot- like a sloppy joe mixture.
  4. In an 8x8 greased pan crush a handful of chips and place on the bottom of the pan, adding more chips until you have a good layer. **** I like to get it as dry as possible here so that it holds together like a lasagna. PLEASE use your taste and judgment here and make it as dry or as liquid as you like. :)
  5. Layer meat mixture on top of chips.
  6. Crush some more chips and place on top of meat. Press down on chip layer to draw some moisture into the top layer of chips.
  7. Top with cheese.
  8. Bake at 350F for about 20 minutes or until cheese is thoroughly melted.
