Walking Taco Casserole Recipe: This Ground Beef Casserole Recipe Is a Fan Favorite by Donna John
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!
