Taco Casserole | Family Favorite | Jennifer L. Scott

Today, I'm sharing a crowd-pleasing, highly tasty dish: the taco casserole. I initially saw this recipe on Mickey from My Bashful Life's channel. I altered the recipe a bit to suit my family's taste.

My children and husband love this casserole. It's like a deconstructed nacho or taco dish. The addition of olive and fresh tomatoes on top make it really lovely. Here is the printable recipe for you:

Taco Casserole

This family-friendly casserole is easy to freeze and is a crowd pleaser, especially for the kids!


  • 3 cups tortilla chips, crushed
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 1 1/2 lbs ground turkey (or ground beef)
  • 1/4 cup taco seasoning
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup salsa (optional)
  • 1 8oz can black beans, drained
  • 1 cup frozen yellow corn
  • 16oz sour cream
  • 1 8oz can olives, drained and chopped
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, sliced
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheese


Sauté the onion in oil. Add the ground turkey (or ground beef). Season with salt and pepper and cook until browned. Drain. Add the taco seasoning and water. Add salsa (optional). Add the black beans and corn and cook for 4 - 5 minutes. In a casserole dish or aluminum baking dish (if freezing), place the crushed tortilla chips. Top the chips with the meat mixture. Spread the sour cream on top. Place the chopped tomatoes and olives on top of the sour cream. Sprinkle cheese on top to finish. If freezing, cover with aluminum foil and label. To cook from frozen, place in a preheated oven at 350 degrees F for 1 hour and a half. If cooking right away, place in a preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until the cheese is nicely melted and the flavors have melded together. Enjoy with chopped scallions.
