A couple of weeks ago I received my 2012 calendar from Betty Crocker in the mail. Each month has a tasty recipe and the one I was most excited to try was this Beef and Bean Taco Casserole. I’m always searching for new dinner recipes to change things up so I was looking forward to trying this. It smelled so good as I was preparing it and I was excited to try it. Derek and I both loved it! It was so simple to make and so tasty. I love anything taco related and now I have a great taco casserole.
The casserole has layers of my favorite things. First a layer of crushed tortilla chips, next a layer of taco seasoned meat mixed with beans and salsa then lastly a layer of vegetables. When it’s done baking you add tomatoes and lettuce and another layer of crushed tortilla chips. I made my own tortilla chips since we didn’t have any and it was so good. I can’t wait to make it again. This recipe is a keeper!
