The Easy Walking Taco Casserole Recipe You Couldn't Get Enough Of

Using ground beef is an inexpensive way to feed the family. Add some corn chips and other Mexican-inspired ingredients and transform that meat into a walking taco casserole recipe everyone will love! If you like Frito pie, you've got to try this easy waking taco casserole recipe.

The ground beef casserole is made by browning ground beef and onion together in a skillet. A can of tomatoes with the liquid and taco seasoning is added and cooked until most of the liquid has evaporated. The cream cheese is stirred in until melted, then the black beans and enchilada sauce are poured in and heated through. The casserole is layered with corn chips, the meat mixture and shredded cheese, then baked. Delicious!

You could use ground chicken or ground turkey instead of ground beef and pinto beans instead of black beans. I didn't use the whole bag of corn chips (save them for snacking!). This casserole recipe is rich, so a dollop of sour cream, sliced fresh jalapenos and chopped onion lightened it up a bit. Next time I'll add guacamole, too!

My family will love this, Donna John! Do you think corn chips are significantly better than nacho chips for this recipe?
Donna John
I think either would work and be delicious. I saw a recipe that uses both. :-)
Brandy Freeman
I've used corn chips, nacho cheese Doritos, cool ranch Doritos or even the spicy nacho or the spicy sweet chili Doritos. All are absolutely delicious 🤤!! You can't go wrong in my opinion!
Donna John
Love the idea of using ranch Doritos. Doing that next! Brandy Freeman I've heard some people use chili cheese fritos, which is an interesting idea.
