Reviews forTaco Salad Casserole
"I know this would taste very good, but look 1 cup has 400 calories so I won't be making it. I want something that tastes good and is low in calories. Sorry!"
""Taco casserole" is the actual name of this recipe in the Jan/Feb 2000 quick Cooking. I found my issue to see if I'd made this when all our kids were still at home. I had & it was marked, "A Favorite!" That's the highest praise a recipe can receive at our house. Glad to stumble across it today while looking for quick & easy recipes to fix next week when I'm so busy preparing for Easter Sunday dinner. I noticed the only change I made in the recipe to was to serve it with mild salsa, not picante sauce. Yum!"
"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!"
"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."
