As a kid there was a hamburger helper type box dinner that I loved. They quit making it so this is my version of that recipe. Enjoy it!

How to Make Taco Casserole

Step-by-Step

  • 1Brown meat and onions in a skillet until the meat is no longer pink.
  • 2Add the tomato sauce, water and taco seasoning mix and stir well. Let simmer for 10 mins.
  • 3While that is cooking, put the tortilla chips in the bottom of a sprayed 13x9 baking dish.
  • 4Pour the meat mixture carefully over the chips,do not stir. Sprinkle the cheese over the whole thing and bake at 350 for 20 mins until nice and bubbly.
  • 5Sprinkle with the green onions and serve with more chips and sour cream.
  • 6VARIATIONS I have tried and love. If you are stretching a budget or feeding a crowd you can add a can of corn or a can of black beans or both to the mixture. If it seems too dry add some salsa or a can of rotel tomatoes. This reheats nicely in the microwave the next day.
