Taco Salad Casserole Recipe

I LOVE tacos!  They are one of my absolute favorite meals.  This casserole tastes like a taco and is so easy to make! I love how the crushed tortilla chips on the bottom make a nice crust. The refried beans and meat mix together with the cheese to make each bite taste like heaven.

TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min.
Bake: 15 min.

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound ground beef (use ground turkey for a healthier option.)
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion

  • 1 can (16 ounces) refried beans
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
