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!

    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.
