Easy Taco Casserole
Taco Salad is a classic dinner recipe. Today’s recipe is a twist on that meal, but in the form of a casserole—taco casserole.
Yes, this Potluck Taco Casserole is delicious and has all the flavors of a taco salad, making it a family favorite. We made it a few years ago and almost forgot about it until we recently remade it. We forgot how great it is and wanted to make sure you must try this simple taco baking recipe.
The base of biscuits and ground beef tastes like French fries and beef in a regular taco salad, and the toppings make it taste alike. You can add all the ingredients you like, but we usually add sour cream, lettuce, tomatoes, cheese and olives!
How to make tacos:
Like I mentioned before, this recipe is a bit like a taco salad or navajo taco, but in the form of a casserole! It has the same ingredients as tacos (use a layer of biscuit instead of french fries, tortillas or fried bread).
- Ground beef
- sour cream
You can even add additional ingredients, such as: fried beans, black beans, salsa or guacamole.
Ground beef. To grill tacos, just cook the ground beef over medium heat, drain and add taco seasoning. Lay the meat on the bottom of a 9×13 pan.
Biscuit layer. Stir the egg, milk, biscuit mixture, and pepper well, then pour it over the ground beef. Bake at 400° for 20-25 minutes until golden brown.
Toppings. Let it cool for a few minutes and then spread with sour cream. Put the toppings you want on it (we make lettuce, tomatoes, cheese and olives) and enjoy!
We like this recipe, but I heard that others have used some The following changes:
- Instead of biscuit mix try cornbread mix or even canned biscuit.
- Ground turkey instead of ground bee
Save in advance
You can do this in advance. After baking the biscuit/meat mixture, cool and cover. Prepare the toppings and store them in different containers.
Store all ingredients in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours. When you are ready to eat, heat the biscuit/meat mixture in the oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 10-15 minutes or until hot. Layer the remaining ingredients according to the recipe instructions.
Leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator for about 3 days. Reheating is a bit tricky because you don’t want to put the lettuce in the microwave or oven. I recommend removing the toppings as much as possible. Put the desired food in the microwave for 30 seconds until it gets hot.
You can also heat it in the oven at 350 degrees for 5-10 minutes, depending on the quantity. Once it’s hot, put back the lettuce topping mixture and enjoy!
You can freeze the bottom of the taco casserole Up to 3 months. After the biscuits/meat are baked, let them cool, wrap them in plastic wrap, then wrap them in aluminum foil, and put them in the refrigerator.
When you are ready to use, defrost and bake in a 350 degree F oven for 10-15 minutes or until hot. Layer the remaining ingredients according to the recipe instructions.
