Easy Taco Casserole

I got this recipe from a friend named Jeremy. It is one his families favorite recipes and he told me that I had to make it. I loved it because it was so easy to throw together! Within 20 minutes this was already in the oven. It was absolutely delicious. Perfect taco flavor and I loved the crunch from the tortilla chips. Everyone loved it and they were able to put their favorite toppings on. It was a fun way to mix up a taco night!

  1. Yum. This looks delcious! I have been on a Mexican kick lately. Last week it was taco lasagna, tonight it’s either going to be tacos or nachos. I will be pinning your recipe for future reference! 🙂


  2. This is good with Doritos…and western dressing. Haven’t tried it with the tomato soup. I’ll keep that in mind as a good substitute!

  3. YUMMMM!!!!! We do Taco Tuesday a LOT in my family and this is a super easy alternative! Thanks for the recipe, pinning right now!


  4. Hi Alyssa! I love this blog! All the recipes seem really family friendly, and I love that you use a ton of crock pot recipes!

  5. Just made this tonight. It tastes excellent, but mine looks runnier than yours. I will definitely make this again, but I think I will only use half a can of water. I used Doritos rather than regular tortilla chips… mainly because I had a craving to Doritos and I knew there’d be leftovers! Thanks for all of your recipes. Your site is very easy to use and you have some great choices!

  6. My whole family loves this recipe!! My boys love that they each can pick their own toppings. Such a great recipe and perfect for busy nights!
