Taco Casserole

Who wants a heaping slice of this taco lasagna? I do, I do! This taco casserole recipe just uses a handful of ingredients and it’s a huge hit with the family!
This taco casserole is such an easy weeknight dinner and perfect for those nights when you're tired of regular tacos.

Oh, yes, that’s right. I made you all a Mexican lasagna with tortillas instead of noodles.

This is one of those easy weeknight recipes that the entire family gets excited about when they see it come out of the oven, all steamy and cheesy and gooey.

I mean, my family love love loves taco night.

Thank goodness for that, because we seriously eat some form of tacos every couple of days. My fried tacos are always a hit.

In fact, I’ve been on a major scrambled egg taco kick lately. It’s the easiest dinner in the world – scramble some eggs, stuff them in a steamy tortilla, top with cheddar, and drizzle on some hot sauce.

My husband thinks it’s kind of weird, but my daughter and I are absolutely in love with scrambled egg tacos.

It’s probably the most perfect comfort food on the planet and they takes about 5 minutes to make. Hard to go wrong with that.

This taco bake is perfect for busy weeknights!

But, anyway! Sometimes we eat beef tacos like normal humans. And by sometimes, I mean a lot.

The kids never complain about tacos, but the husband starts to get this look in his eyes when he sees me pull out the tortilla warmer. A look that says, “can we maybe eat dinner with a fork just once this week?”

Forks. Pfft. Overrated.

This taco bake is such an easy weeknight dinner and perfect for those nights when you're tired of regular tacos.

But, I love the man, so I turned my love of tacos into this Mexican lasagna with tortillas!

This recipe is just seven ingredients and beyond simple to throw together! You guys are going to love it.

I use a can of Nacho Cheese Soup in here, because hello. Nacho cheese!

You can swap in cheddar soup or cream of chicken/mushroom soup, if you prefer! You could also probably get away with just melting up some Velveeta with milk in place of the canned soup. I mean, this is a pretty simple recipe and I can’t imagine you’ll be able to mess it up!

In fact, a can of actual nacho cheese would work just fine too!

Don’t you love when you have options? 🙂

Pin this taco casserole to save for later!

I get a lot of questions about the tortillas in this recipe and whether or not they get soggy. I don’t find them soggy myself, but if it’s something that you’re worried about, I’m happy to say that yes, corn tortillas would work instead. 🙂

This burrito casserole is a serious winner for a quick family dinner!

Update: Y’all loved this recipe so much that I decided we needed a burrito version as well! Check out my Burrito Casserole and give that a try too!

All of these Mexican casseroles are so good and I just know you’re going to love them all. Mexican for dinner every night! 🙂

This chicken enchilada casserole tastes like my favorite cream cheese chicken enchiladas, without all of the work! So easy and family friendly.

I also made a chicken enchilada casserole that is similar to this one.

Give this taco lasagna a try and let me know what you think!

Pretty sure it’ll be a new family favorite in your house too!
