Taco Casserole

"This is a real make fast dinner. It's easy and the kids like to top it with their favorite toppings. I have used the nacho cheese Doritos with this and it was great! Enjoy!"

    Delicious! I found this recipe in Taste of Home's Quick Cooking from January/February 2000. I decided to double the beans so it was more beans than meat, and I used Doritos. In place of tomatoes, I topped with Ro-tel and instead of packaged taco seasoning mix I use Recipe #390613. Thanks for posting this Lisa!

    Something all the kids will eat! Wow! I left out peppers and cut up low-carb tortillas for the bottom. I mixed in the refried beans with the gr. turkey and onions, forgot to put in the taco seasoning. So I sprinkled it on top, sprinkled some garlic powder and added cheddar cheese at the last 5 minutes. This is also pretty friendly for our diet right now. Thanks so much for a great change!

    YUM!! This was so easy and delicious! I did make a few small changes. I used broken up taco shells for the bottom. I added my refried beans to the beef mixture and put that on top of the shells. Then I made a package of taco rice (the kind lipton makes) and mixed a 1/2 cup of salse in there and layered that on top of the bean mixture and then the cheese on top. I got a nice 13x9 casserole and some pretty rave reviews! Thanks a lot for the recipe! It is a keeper for me!

    My sons band was practicing so I needed something for 5 teenage boys. I figured this would be something they would all enjoy. I followed the recipe other then I doubled everything except the refried beans, I only used one can. I also didn't add onions and peppers because I wasn't sure if they all liked them or not. I didn't measure the chips, I just covered the bottom of the pan and gave them the rest of the bag on the side. I also added the refried beans to the beef mixture and stirred that together. I didn't bake this either. I assembled as directed and immediately served. Everyone enjoyed this.
