Reviews for Taco Salad Casserole
"A great way to use leftover taco meat. The chips stayed very crisp and we just added lettuce, tomato, salsa and sour cream individually. Hubby ate 3 servings!"
"Very easy and delicious. I added some hot sauce because I thought it needed a little more kick. I also served it with extra tortilla chips."
"Does she mean green chili, not green peppers?"
"This recipe is easy. I did substitute ground chicken, used a small can of tomato sauce instead of the water, and added 1 can of corn drained. Because I was going to have leftovers (there is only my husband and I) I did not put the tortilla chips on the bottom when I baked it. To serve we crushed the chips on a plate and put the casserole on top and the lettuce and sour cream. My husband loved it so, we have had it 3 times this week. I don't like a lot of spice, but my husband does, so he put salsa on top."
"Was okay but it needed a little more kick too it."
"I think my grandkids would like this. I make my own taco seasoning without salt. It is easy to find on line."
"This was like what my husband & I call 'super nachos'-but with loads more stuff! I followed the suggestion of using 2 cups of chips. I hate taco seasoning mix-and I have an aversion to salt. I skipped the seasoning & water and made the meat like I usually do when making tacos-I use a jar of salsa. Many are very little or no sodium and we love the chunks of veggies. Also used refried beans with chilies. Yum!!!"
"I made this a few nights ago and we loved it! Will definitely make again, so easy."
