    Little Bee's Note:

    I got this recipe off of and we really liked it! Its very easy to make. It calls for Ortega brand ingredients but you can substitute whatever brand name you prefer. Some of the ingredients say optional but I wouldn't leave them out if it can be helped since I think they make the dish tastier!

      This was terrific!! I left out the olives but did use the other suggested toppings. It is really hot here today and I didn't want to heat up my house with the oven, so I baked them in the BBQ and MAN....what a terrific flavour! Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT 3:)

      Awesome dish! I left out the olives, but otherwise made it exactly as directed. We also used the leftover taco sauce to top the casserole, along with the onions, tomatoes, and sour cream. I think it would be good also with lettuce on top. DBF thought it would be good with red beans and/or corn mixed in with the meat. I didn't try it this way because I didn't have either of those ingredients, but I agree that sounds good. I will definitely be making this again. It is so easy and DBF ate 2/3 of the pan! Thanks so much Little Bee for finding this one!

      We usually have this for dinner about once a week in the winter. We all love it. I use 1.5 lbs of ground beef, 18 taco shells, and I don't add the green chiles. It makes for a nice, fast meal on a weeknight. It is also very versatile, you can really add or delete to your tastes.
