Taco Casserole

taco casserole

This taco casserole is my new favorite on a busy night. I make tacos regularly, they are my go-to quick meal that the whole family loves. Sometimes I like to mix it up and make a great taco salad and now with this recipe I have another option for taco night. This taco casserole is a fun twist on a classic, easy dinner. I found the original recipe came from here, but I lightened it up a little  and it was still amazing. My whole family loved this casserole as much as they love regular tacos and this casserole was just as easy to throw together.

Recipes that are easy, healthy, and family friendly are the best kind of recipes in my opinion!
