I absolutely love casseroles because they are delicious and feed a lot of people. Casseroles and enchiladas are the hardest thing for me to photograph. You kind of just scoop them up and a lot of the time they aren’t very pretty. We have Taco Tuesday at our house and I always make this taco casserole, but it was time to switch things up!

This casserole was fantastic! It was hearty and the layers are amazing. The best part is that you can top it with your favorite things. Fresh avocado, tomatoes, sour cream and corn tortilla chips made this delicious casserole even better and this makes the perfect weeknight meal!

  1. 5 stars
    Was great!!!, I added drained can of black beans and roasted corn salsa to meat mixture. Easy weeknight meal

  2. Used ricotta rather than cottage cheese – but since it’s a Mexican inspired dish, could also use cojita. Made up our own Mexican seasonings for the meat rather than taco seasonings. Tastes great and you can modify at will.

  3. This is terrific! I used ground turkey instead of beef. Also, I cut my tortillas into fourths and toasted them in the oven to make them crispy. Thanks so much for a keeper.

  4. This was so good. My family loved it. Don’t skip the cottage cheese. It was great. I added some chopped green onion to the cottage cheese mixture. My family has requested I make this again this week!

  5. Just had this for dinner – loved it! And more importantly, so did my hubby! He said we should have this for dinner every week! Thanks for sharing the recipe.

  6. We love all Mexican dishes so couldn’t wait to make this. It was a nice change using the corn tortillas instead of the flour ones. It gave it a nice flavor. It was picture perfect when I took it out of the oven. The only changes I made were: I put black olives on top with tomatoes and advocado and we topped it with taco sauce instead of salsa. Yum!
