Easy Taco Casserole Recipe

  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1-2 teaspoon taco seasoning (1 for mild, 2 for more kick)
  • 1 1/4 cup jarred tomato salsa (mild or spicy, depending on your tastes)
  • 5 large tortillas
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese


In a large skillet, cook ground beef over medium-high heat until mostly browned.
Add pepper and continue cooking, stirring often, until pepper has softened and meat has browned completely.
Stir in taco seasoning and salsa, and pour into another bowl.
Place two large tortillas, one on top of the other, in the bottom of the same skillet (or you can layer it on a sheet pan if your tortillas don't fit). Top with 1/3 ground beef mixture and 1/2 cup cheese.
Repeat layers: one tortilla, 1/3 ground beef, 1/2 cup cheese, one tortilla, last 1/3 ground beef, 1/2 cup cheese, one tortilla.
On top of the last tortilla, sprinkle the remaining cheese. Cover and cook on low until warmed through and cheese is melted, 4-5 minutes, or pop in the oven at 350 degrees F for 10 minutes if using an oven safe skillet.
Slice and serve.
