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.
This is a very tasty casserole! Followed your easy directions, but, did top the servings with homemade green chili and grated cheddar. Made a delicious dinner! This is well worth repeating! Thanks so much for sharing, LB!
This is absolutely delicious! I live in the UK so had to make a few substitutions. I couldn't find canned chilies so I used fresh red birds-eye chilies (about 4) and regular large green spicy chilies (about 2). Instead of taco sauce I used "Discovery" brand Mexican sauce. I do think that next time I may make it without the taco shells and serve it with tortilla chips or warmed tortillas instead. A very spicy and tasty treat!
