Walking Taco Casserole Recipe: You'll Sit Down for This Ground Beef Casserole Recipe

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. 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 adding guacamole, too!

Cuisine: American / Mexican
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes

Servings: 8


Here's how to make it: 

  1. Brown the ground beef and onion in a skillet.
  2. Add the can of tomatoes (with liquid) and taco seasoning.
  3. Cook until most of the liquid has evaporated.
  4. Add cream cheese and stir to melt.
  5. Add the black beans and enchilada sauce. Stir to combine and heat through.
  6. Put a layer of corn chips on the bottom of a 13x9-inch pan. Top with half of the meat mixture and half of the grated cheese.
  7. Repeat layers.
  8. Bake in a preheated 350-degree F oven for about 20 minutes or until heated through and cheese has melted.

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.
Gwen Johnson
I've made a recipe to similar to this but it didn't have the black beans. Like that addition. Fiber!
