How to Make Taco Casserole


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 11x7-inch baking dish.

  3. Layer half of the broken shells on the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Cover with half of the meat mixture; sprinkle with 1 cup of cheese. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
  4. Bake for 20 or 25 minutes or until bubbly and cheese has melted. Garnish with sliced green onions, additional cheese, diced tomatoes, shredded lettuce or sour cream.
