Happy Cinco De Mayo day, everyone! Whether you usually celebrate or not, aren’t Tuesday’s meant for tacos? Today’s post is about having a yummy taco tasting dish but made in a casserole so it’s simple and quick to do. Kids can have fun helping to make this meal. Items needed for Taco Tuesday Casserole are: 2 cups cooked rice, 1 – 14.5 oz can of cooked pork OR 1 pound of hamburger, 1 – 15.25 oz canned corn, 1 – 15 oz can of black beans, 1 – 14.5 oz can of diced tomatoes (we use fire-roasted), 1 – 4 oz can of canned green chiles, 1 package of taco seasoning and 1 – 8 oz bag of grated cheddar cheese. Other optional items would be chips for eating the casserole, sour cream, salsa, lettuce, etc. Whatever items you like with tacos. This recipe is very versatile, so feel free to change it up. Grease a 9″ x 13″ pan and turn your oven on to 350 degrees.
If you are using hamburger, start by browning it in a large skillet. After the hamburger is cooked thoroughly, (or if you are using cooked pork) mix the meat, corn, black beans, diced tomatoes, the package of taco seasoning and diced green chiles, together in a large skillet and heat until everything is heated through.
You can make a layer of rice in the bottom of your 9″ x 13″ pan and then pour the combined ingredients over the rice. OR you can mix the rice into the skillet with the other ingredients. This time I mixed the rice in. Pour combined ingredients into the 9″ x 13″ pan.
You can mix about 1/3 of the package of grated cheese into the mixture or just sprinkle it all on the top. Bake at 350 degrees for around 30 minutes or until its bubbly.
This time around we just had Tostitos Scoops chips and sour cream with the casserole.
Doesn’t it look yummy?
Mmmm! It tastes great! Since I’m late getting this posted, maybe you can try it next Tuesday! Ha! Enjoy and thanks for visiting my blog!
