    This taco casserole was delicious!

    I added more of each of the suggested spices, cracked pepper and tomato paste for a richer flavor. Good recipe, quick and easy, thanks

    I’ll give is a 4.5! But I didn’t really follow the recipe to a T. I’m not a vegetarian so I added ground turkey and I also added a can of diced tomatoes. I forgot to purchase tortilla chips but I had corn tortillas so I fried them to make tortilla chips. I wish I knew a way to prevent the tortilla chips from being soggy after it’s baked. Perhaps the liquid from my diced tomatoes and the beans made the chips a little soggy. The flavor was excellent and I definitely added way more cumin, paprika and chili powder than was suggested. I also add a garlic powder. I would also say that the recipe calls for more cheese to live up to its name. There wasn’t much cheese in my opinion.

    Delicious! Followed the recipe closely (though I forgot to buy kidney beans and used 1 can of corn instead of 1c frozen corn), and it turned out great! Love the different textures of tortilla chips, from crunchy to soft. Will make again, though not great for leftovers/meal prepping (tortilla chips all get soggy).

    Yummy Next time I’ll try to cut down on ingredients since I’m only cooking for 2 At least I’ll have leftovers for a few days

    Just wonderful! I added mushrooms and fresh diced tomatoes.

    Made this tonight, so good and plenty to feed at least four. I used taco seasoning on some hamburger to add to the flavor.

    This turned out to be pretty good. I will definitely make it again. I added extra chips and cheese and it made a large 10x13 dish.

    It was good but not what I expected.
    Yummly User 2 years ago
    Excellent! I doubled the onion, added some taco flavored burger and omitted the pinto beans, cuz I didn’t have any on hand. Will definitely make this again and again!
    Yummly User 2 years ago

    I used regular tortillas and added broccoli to the mix. Very tasty
    Yummly User 2 years ago
    It was yummy and easy to modify/customize using the ingredients I had. I cooked the onions and peppers longer. Will make again.
    Yummly User 2 years ago
    Very tasty. I don’t like corn that much, so I left that out and threw in some leftover red bell pepper. Garnished with cilantro, green onions, and sour cream. Leftovers weren’t soggy or anything either.

    Better than expected! I would like joy recommend that the baking dish you use, have sides to hold everything in. I also used multiple types of peppers more than the listed to chop up an throw in

    Used the recipe as mostly a guide since I swapped out a few things and just used taco seasoning but it's fairly customizable. Tastes really good, will definitely try yo make a spicier one next time.

    Made this pretty much as is, and it was really good - better than my usual taco casserole, which was pretty good to being with. Used regular Jack cheese and no cayenne pepper because I am cooking for a 93 year old and a 12 year old who do not like spicy. (My husband and I used hot sauce at the table, which was fine.) Nice flavor with the 3 kinds of beans, and nice consistency when baked. Will definitely make again - everyone liked it, and that's saying something in my house!
