Taco Salad Casserole Recipe

Taco Salad Casserole Recipe

This casserole tastes like a taco salad and is a breeze to assemble. I crush tortilla chips to form a bottom layer, then spread on refried beans, a spicy meat mixture and cheese. —Rhonda McKee, Greensburg, Kansas
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 15 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion

  • 1 envelope taco seasoning
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup crushed tortilla chips
  • 1 can (16 ounces) refried beans
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
  • Toppings: chopped lettuce and tomatoes, sliced ripe olives, sour cream and picante sauce

Directions

  • 2. Place chips in a greased 8-in. square baking dish. In a small bowl, stir refried beans; spread over chips. Top with beef mixture and cheese.

"Really good! Quick and easy too, love that. I used my own taco seasoning but need to increase it a bit more next time. Also used spicy retried beans, yum."

"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!!!"

"Family loved it. Very easy. Put can of regular cooked beans into the food processor to sub for the refried and it turned out fine. Added a 1/2 cup more chips to the base. I was worried they'd be mush but they weren't. That would have been a deal breaker for the kids lol. I would make it again."

"Just made this recipe for the grandchildren and it turned out great! Very quick and easy. Used two cups of chips as that is what I had left in the bag. The kids used the toppings of their choice and thought it was great! For 235gbt about the sodium content.... 1,800-2,400 is the average amount of sodium needed daily for an adult to keep your body healthy. There's no added salt to this dish so it all comes from the taco seasoning mix. Add the seasonings listed in the mix (to taste) without the salt and it will fit your need for lower salt intake."

"Very quick and adaptable to your own tastes. We love Mexican food this takes next to no time. I use 2 cups of coarsely broken tortilla chips because 1 cup comes off a bit skimpy. After coming out of the oven I top it with shredded green leaf lettuce, diced tomatoes, black olives, diced avocado and sour cream. A great quick tasty dinner to sit down to and watch your favorite show."

"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 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."
