TACO CASSEROLE

Most helpful positive review

– Oh, yes, that’s right. I made you all a Mexican lasagna with tortillas instead of noodles. It’s one of those easy weeknight recipes that the entire family gets excited about when they see it come out of the oven, all steamy and cheesy and gooey.

– I mean, my family love love loves taco night. Thank goodness for that, because we seriously eat some form of tacos every couple of days. My fried tacos are always a hit.
In fact, I’ve been on a major scrambled egg taco kick lately. It’s the easiest dinner in the world – scramble some eggs, stuff them in a steamy tortilla, top with cheddar, and drizzle on some hot sauce. It’s probably the most perfect comfort food on the planet and it takes about 5 minutes to make.

INGREDIENTS:

1 pound ground beef
1 packet taco seasoning
1/4 cup water
1 can Ro*Tel diced tomatoes with chiles, drained
1 can Nacho Cheese Soup
1/4 cup sour cream
1 cup grated cheddar
12 8-inch soft tortillas
guacamole, cilantro, sour cream for topping, as desired

DIRECTIONS:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9×9 baking dish with non-stick spray.
Add the beef to a large skillet over medium heat and crumble as it cooks. Drain grease when cooked through.
Add the taco seasoning and water to the skillet and cook for 2 minutes.
Dump the tomatoes, cheese soup, and sour cream into a medium mixing bowl. Stir in the cooked meat.
Place 3 tortillas in the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Top with 1/3 of the meat mixture.
Repeat layers, ending with a layer of tortillas on the top. Sprinkle the cheese over the top.
Bake for 20 minutes or until hot and melty.
Serve sprinkled with chopped cilantro, guacamole, and extra sour cream, as desired.
