When the kids were little, this was a great recipe to put together easily and quickly, and still easy on the budget. But my girlfriends love it when I make this for our luncheons as well. Enjoy!

How to Make Taco Casserole (easy, cheap, and quick)


  • 1Brown your meat, and then add onions and peppers, taco seasoning, and required amount of water. Usually a cup per package of seasoning, and 1 package to a lb of beef. let this simmer for about 10 mins to reduce some, and let the meat soak up flavor.
    Add your dice tomatoes, tomato soup/sauce, corn, and totilla chips. Let this heat through.
    Dump into a sprayed oil casserole dish, and top with cheese. And then bake for about 20 min. on 350, or until cheese is melted, and slightly browned.
    This can be served on top of fresh tortilla chips, with lettuce as a taco salad, or as is with maybe some chips on the side. Olives and sour creme really add to this dish as well.
