"Our family was pleasantly surprised by this delightful dish that calls for leftover taco fixings," relates Bonnie King of Lansing, Michigan. "Some of us enjoyed it even more than the original tacos! It's easy to put together and tasty enough to serve to company."
Comforting mac and cheese with a touch of taco flavoring and tortilla-chip crunch…no wonder kids love it! Moms will love that it's ready in no time flat and isn't expensive to make. —Betsy King, Duluth, Minnesota
I usually keep a can of sloppy joe sauce in the pantry, because our kids love sloppy joes. But sometimes I don't have buns on hand. With this fun casserole, we can still enjoy the flavor that they love in a flash. The bun-like top crust is made with biscuit mix, sprinkled with sesame seeds and baked until golden.

"This hearty hot dish relies on a package of au gratin potatoes for simple preparation," notes Linda Muir of Big Lake, Minnesota. Chock-full of beef, potatoes, corn, tomatoes and cheese, this southwestern supper is sure to be a hit in your home.
"If your gang likes stuffed cabbage, they'll love this filling, beefy recipe. And you'll love that it has all the flavor-but with a lot less work than stuffed cabbage!"

"I love Tater Tots, and this casserole is a delicious version, but I wish it was healthier.” The Healthy Cooking experts slashed the fat from this favorite dish while keeping all the tots! Scott Woodward - Elkhorn, WI
I like to make this dish when time before supper is short. It serves two to three people, but if we have unexpected company I double the ingredients and use a 9-in. x 13-in. pan. The I call it my "Please Stay Casserole"!
A friend shared the recipe with me, and I've prepared it monthly ever since. The crust is made from refrigerated crescent roll dough. While the ground beef is browning, I simply press the dough into a baking dish. Guest always comment on the tasty crust as well as the zesty filling and crunchy topping.—Patricia Eckard, Singers Glen, Virginia
Our family loves Mexican food, so this flavorful, satisfying casserole is a favorite. It’s nice to be able to get the taste of burritos and cut any serving size you want. —Joyce Kent, Grand Rapids, Michigan
I made this hearty, layered Southwestern casserole for a dinner meeting once, and now, I'm asked to bring it every time we have a potluck. Everybody loves the ground beef and bean filling, and crunchy, cheesy topping. —Anita Wilson, Mansfield, Ohio
