Easy Quick Taco Casserole

Every once and a while, I grab one of the little recipe cards that you can find around name-brand products at the store. I saw a recipe for Taco Casserole from McCormick and figured since it looked easy - I might as well give it a shot.

This is a good recipe for kids. It's not too spicy and it's easy to make.


1 1/2 lbs lean ground beef or Turkey (with the seasonings the Turkey is the healthier choice and the difference isn't too obvious)
1 pkg Taco seasoning
1 - 15 oz can Tomato sauce
1 - 16 oz can of Pinto beans (drain and rinse)
1 - 11 oz can of Yellow corn drained
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1 cup broken Tortilla chips

  1. Brown meat and drain fat.
  2. Add seasoning mix, tomato sauce, beans and corn.
  3. Bring to boil.
  4. Reduce heat and simmer for five minutes, stir occasionally.
  5. Spoon mixture into 2 quart baking dish.
  6. Top with cheese and tortilla chips.
  7. Bake at 400 degrees for 5 - 10 minutes.

Hint: Serve with a side of sour cream and the dish is even tastier!
