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

"This recipe was so easy and delicious. My granddaughter loves tacos. I think that she would eat hem every day! She stayed for super the other night and I made this for her. It was such a hit, she made me promise that I would give her Mommy the recipe. You can be sure that I will be making this one again !"

"This is delicious and quick to throw together on busy weeknights. I usually have all the ingredients on hand. My kids like it best with double the amount of chips on the bottom, and often request it with any flavor Doritos! I top it with shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes and sliced olives."

"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!"

"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."
