Easy Taco Casserole
Taco Salad is one of those recipes that I can remember eating since I was a little girl. I always enjoyed it but never realized why I remembered it so well being a staple dinner in our home. Now that I’m a mom myself and realize just how yummy and easy it is, I know why it’s made so often. It can be changed up in so many ways, is easy to feed to lots of people and is usually enjoyed by all.
Today’s recipe has all the great taste of taco salad, but is in casserole form. Yes, this Potluck Taco Casserole is so delicious and has all the great flavor of taco salad making it a family favorite. My mom first made this casserole years ago but she recently just came across the recipe again so we knew we had to give it a go and share it with all y’all. The biscuit and ground beef base taste just like chips and beef in regular taco salad and the toppings make it taste just like it too. You can add all the ingredients you love but we usually add sour cream, lettuce, tomatoes, cheese and olives!
Ground beef with taco seasoning.
The biscuit and ground beef base are what add so much flavor to the recipe.
How to Make Taco Bake Casserole:
Like I mentioned before, this recipe is kind of like a Navajo Taco, but in casserole form! It has all the same ingredients as a taco (with a biscuit layer instead of chips, tortillas, or fry bread).
- Ground beef
- Sour Cream
You could even add a layer of:
- Refried Beans
- Black beans
- Diced Avocado
Just cook the ground beef over medium heat, drain, and add the taco seasoning according to package directions. Spread the meat on the bottom of a 9×13 pan. Beat the eggs, milk, biscuit mis, and pepper until well combined and pour over ground beef. Bake at 400° for 20-25 minutes until golden brown. Let it cool for a few minutes, and then spread on sour cream. Top with your desired toppings (we do lettuce, tomato, cheese, and olives), and ENJOY!
Top it off with all your favorite ingredients – including lettuce, tomato, sour cream, olives and cheese.
The result is a delicious Taco Casserole that is perfect for dinner or your next potluck. Like me, it may bring back the tastes of childhood. 😉
