Easy Taco Bake Casserole

 If you are looking for an easy casserole dish, this is the recipe for you!  Easy Taco Bake Casserole, gives you the flavor of eating tacos, with the simplicity of a casserole dish.  I have made this recipe different ways.  You can substitute the ground beef for ground turkey, and it comes out just as great.  Also, if you are looking for a vegetarian casserole dish...do not count this one out.  My suggestion is substituting the ground beef for 1 can of refried beans and 1 can of drained pinto beans.  Mix both these ingredients together, and follow the rest of the recipe...you will love it! 

 I add black olives, fresh tomatoes, and a spoonful of sour cream to each serving.  Or you can add your own topping to a serving, it is completely optional.

 You can use any Mexican or Taco Seasoning Mix for this Easy Taco Bake Casserole .  But, I like to use the Taco Seasoning from Savory Spice.  The Mexican Oregano that is in this seasoning makes the world of difference.  Plus, I use it in other recipes too!   Get $10 back when you shop spices online at www.savoryspiceshop.com .

 You can use any standard baking pan. However,  I recommend the  Stainless Steel Baking Pan by The Prepared Pantry. This pan is not only good for this Easy Taco Bake Casserole recipe, but you can use it for roasting chicken and baking lasagna too!
