Easy Taco Casserole Recipe

Ground Beef Taco Casserole
This Easy Taco Casserole Recipe is one that I have been making for about as long as I have been cooking on my own. That’s because it is EASY and it is GOOD!! It’s so simple to assemble without a lot of time and the result is delicious. It also makes GREAT leftovers, but I recommend heating them up in the oven rather than the microwave if you want the chips to stay crispy.

The recipe uses a packet of taco seasoning mix, but you can substitute your own homemade taco seasoning – something that is super easy to mix together and keep on hand in your pantry. Another possible variation for this recipe is to make it with chicken instead of beef. To do that, I just dice up two chicken breasts and make sure it is cooked all the way through as the first step of the recipe preparation.
