If you love Mexican food and easy dinners, then we’ve got the perfect combination for you with this taco casserole recipe. Dinner seriously doesn’t get easier or more delicious than this incredible casserole.
This taco casserole has all the components of a classic taco but it’s made in casserole form. You’ve got ground beef with taco seasoning, lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, sour cream…everything you could want in your taco, all layered up and served from a baking pan.
We love this taco casserole recipe because it’s so simple to make, especially if you’re looking for a meal that will feed multiple people with minimal effort. Looking for game day eats? This is the perfect recipe.
The base of this taco casserole is made up of some ground beef that’s browned in a skillet with taco seasoning. The ground beef is combined with biscuit mix to form the base layer of this casserole, with the biscuit mix forming the “breaded” part of a taco (a.k.a. the taco shell or tortilla). Once the base has been baked in the oven, it’s topped with all the fixings.
We like to include favorites like black beans, sour cream, and black olives in our taco casserole, but the options are really endless and can be customized to your preference. If you’re baking this potluck-style taco casserole for a crowd, let the casserole cool to room temperature before serving so you can get neater squares when you’re cutting the food.
