Easy Taco casserole

It’s so easy to get wrapped up in everything we are doing from making sure the kids get off to school to working and of course cleaning the house that never seems to stay clean that we forget to plan dinner. And honestly we run out of ideas for dinner! Half the time I make my kids help me plan for the weekly dinner menu because i am just out of ideas on what to cook. So here’s an easy one. This takes all of five minutes to throw together so all you have to do is buy the ingredients.


1 lb ground beef

1 can re-fried beans

cherry tomatoes chopped

olives sliced (optional)

Romaine lettuce thinly shredded

aged cheddar cheese

chunky salsa

sour cream

Taco seasoning

Favorite Tortilla chips


Directions :

Brown your ground beef and then season with your taco seasoning by following the seasoning directions.

In a 9×13 glass baking dish, layer your chips, meat, refried beas, salsa. I usually do 2 layers of each ingredient. On top place a nice layer of your cheese and throw it in the over on 350 for 10 minutes.

Take it out and finish adding your lettuce, tomatoes and olives. Top with sour cream 🙂

Done! Dinner i on the table, everyone is happy, people have had vegetables. On a night where it just seems like you are chasing your tail this is a crowd pleaser.

I have also been known to do black beans instead of re-fried and add avocados. what the fork
