Potluck Taco Casserole
Total TimePrep: 25 min. Bake: 20 min.
Very good dinner. I also used jiffy corn bread & let everyone put their own toppings. Will definitely make again!!
We love taco Tuesday, but decided to switch up for a change. I did alter this recipe a little bit because some of the reviews said there was not a lot of flavor. And what is a taco without corn tortillas? So I broke a couple taco shells in half and layered the bottom with those. To the meat mixture, I added a finely chopped small whole jalapeno, and one can of green chilies chopped. After I laid that on to the taco shells, instead of biscuit mix, I used a box of jiffy cornmeal mix. I added a little bit of chili powder, cumin, and onion powder to that. This casserole turned out pretty awesome! I put all the toppings separate so that we could do what we wanted. My granddaughter normally does not like spicy, so I thought it must not have been a very hot jalapeno, because she ate her whole plateful! What I like is that this is so versatile you can make your own changes and call it yours. Thanks, TOH!
This dish is delicious. Hubby says it's a keeper. The sour cream and other toppings I placed on the side for everyone to add on to their dish as they wanted.
This is a great and easy meal. We both loved it.
This recipe turned out great. The whole family enjoyef thoroughly. I made a couple of changes, I sliced the peppers (1 red and 2 green) in to thin strips and sauteed on medium while cooking the meat then added them along with about a cup of Mexican blend cheese to the meat while still in the pan. Stirred until the cheese was melted, then added the meat to the dish as instucted. All in all, a great success!
We had this delicious casserole for dinner tonight. I halved the recipe for the two of us and used some taco meat I had left over from tacos the other night. Perfect. We loved this recipe and it is so quick and easy. I may sub chopped green chilies for the green pepper next time. Lots of possibilities. Volunteer Field Editor
Yes, definitely could be cut in half. I used a 9 x 9 dish.
Can this recipe be cut in half for a 21 x 21 cm baking dish?
My husband and I love this casserole. It is quick, easy, and yummy! It has become my go to recipe for our taco Tuesday meals. Thanks for sharing!
This was very good but if not entirely eaten you can’t reheat with sour cream and lettuce on top. Much easier to make tacos and let everyone do their own thing - adding whatever ingredients they wish. If you’re sure you’re entire the entire casserole will be eaten this is a great recipe.
