Reviews for Taco Salad Casserole
"My whole family loved this! It was better than taco night! I did not put the tortilla chips in the casserole, however. I had the kids sprinkle it on top after it was baked. The kids put the taco toppings on top of the casserole, I ate the taco salad without the chips so it was low-carb. I will definitely make this again!"
"i tried to downsize the amount of sodium.... but didn't know how... when ya on a salt free diet due to health reasons - ya do every bit to help thy self... but 1,181 mg of sodium - is a wee bit too much - 405 calories - so we will pass!"
"Very good, Used ground turkey instead of beef. delish!!"
"I thought this was just ok, but my husband really liked it. He wanted me to switch out the refried beans for black beans, which is why I think I didn't like it as much. I felt it was just too dry overall. Next time I will either go with refried beans, or do the black beans with the tomato inside the casserole. It was pretty easy to make."
"We had this delicious dish last night and declare it a five star winner. Husband loved it and wants it again. I used spicy, fat free refried beans , low fat ground beef, 2% shredded sharp Cheddar cheese, and corn chips. This was so easy to prepare and we gobbled it down. I highly recommend this casserole as a Volunteer Field Editor for Taste of Home."
