Tortilla Taco Casserole

Pat Duran


This recipe came about because I had ground beef thawed out for dinner ,but couldn't decide what to make with it..after checking out my refrigerator..I literally used all my leftovers to make this casserole. And my family said how good it was, and that the flavor was very good...and we should have it on our regular monthly menu. I did have some leftover rice, that I forgot to add to the scrambled next time I will use it.(I put the rice in the freezer).
