A Great Taco Casserole

This taco casserole is fairly easy to make, which I like. And, like most casseroles, it’s incredibly versatile. You can throw whatever you want in here, and it will probably work.

Here’s how I do it:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees, and spray a 9 by 13 pan with cooking spray.

We love ground beef, so I use a pound and a half. I brown it in a frying pan with a half cup or so of chopped onions, and about a half cup of diced peppers. I try to use both red and green for the color, but if I only have one or the other, that’s okay.

When the meat has browned, I drain the fat and turn the temperature down.

Next, I stir in a can of tomato soup and some cream cheese. We like cream cheese, so I use one of those small tubs of Philadelphia.

Once that is mixed together, I add a pack of taco seasoning and a cup or so of shredded cheese. We are not real picky about cheese, so if I don’t have a bag of the Mexican blend, I will use what I do have. It all works.

After I stir in the seasoning and the cheese, I pour it all into the baking pan.

Next, I pour a bag of shredded hash browns into a bowl. These should be thawed, so they are easier to work with and will bake faster. I stir in some more onions and peppers, and one or two more cups of cheese. I also season with some salt and pepper, and a little Johnny’s just to make it fun.

The hash brown mixture is placed on top of the hamburger in the pan. I spread it out so it’s even, and press it down a little bit.

Bake it for a half hour or so, until it’s golden brown. We really like this, and I hope you do too.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today. I hope you can join me again on Sunday for another behind-the-scenes look at the Drill series.

      Hi John, thanks for stopping by. It really is good. And depending on our mood of the moment, we have put all different kinds of things in it. We even tried it with different kinds of meat, like chicken or pork. If you give it a try, I sure hope you like it.

        We would use turkey but I think it would be delicious just the same.
