Taco Casserole Recipe

One of my weekly dilemmas is what to make for dinner. I think family meals are important but I am not always the best at planning ahead. I try to keep the basics on hand like meat and spices but it is the fresh ingredients that I need to buy. Luckily, we have a small grocery store in town that I can stop at to pick up last minute ingredients for easy homemade meals. Last week, one of the meals we had was a Taco Casserole made with ground beef and McCormick Taco Seasoning Mix using the recipe I found at McCormick.com. It was so delicious and really easy to make.

McCormick Taco Seasoning

Brown ground beef and add McCormick Taco Seasoning Mix. I have always used this taco seasoning and it is what my mom always used when I was growing up. McCormick Taco Seasoning Mix is the perfect blend of spices for a flavorful meal!

Taco Casserole IngredientsAdd one can of tomato paste, drained and rinsed black beans (The recipe calls for pinto beans but I used black beans instead.) and drained Mexican-style corn.

Taco Casserole SimmerBring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes.

Tortilla ChipsSpoon into a baking dish, top with shredded cheese and coarsely chopped tortilla chips. Bake for 5-10 minutes at 400 degrees until cheese is melted.

Taco Casserole ToppingsWhile the casserole is baking, chop green onions, tomato, avocado and cilantro.

Taco Salad RecipeRemove casserole from the oven. Before serving, top the casserole with the tomatoes, green onion, cilantro and avocado. Serve with additional tortilla chips and sour cream.

  2. Athena S says

    I love using all kinds of spices when cooking I tend to use minced onions,garlic,lemon seasoning and basil the most

    Oh man i love the pot roast mix for the slow cooker, and uh every other spice in my cabinet is basically theirs too!

  4. says

    I love McCormick’s grill seasonings, garlic, cinnamon, and I could go on and on. I haven’t found a McCormick spice yet that my family doesn’t like.

  5. Vicki L says

    I like the pumpkin pie spice and the mexican seasonings the best, but really, which McCormick spice DON’T I like?!?

  6. says

    I love, love, love their Recipe Inspirations Quesadilla Casserole! It’s delicious and easy to adapt for vegetarians with some extra beans, fake ground beef, or TVP.

  7. Anna Bennett says

    I love Tacos & your Taco Salad looks really good,but can it be done with out the avocado?
    Reason I ask is because my family & I don’t like avocados.

      Hi Anna,
      Most definately! The McCormick recipe doesn’t call for them. My family didn’t finish all of the casserole the night that I made it so I froze the leftovers (after removing the chips and fresh toppings). Yesterday I put the leftovers in the Crock-Pot and added some cheese sauce and served it as a chip dip. My guests loved it!

    I love the Perfect Pinch for chicken! It has the spices I love to use when I grill chicken, all in one bottle! Perfect!

  9. Marsha M. SOCAL says

    I like the grill seasonings that McCormick. We do a lot of grilling, and their seasonings have everything all in one jar.

    This was always a favorite when my children were growing up. Over the years since they have left home, I had forgotten about it. Thanks for the reminder. I make mine with the same seasoning packet, but always used Fritos for the chips. I will definitely reintroduce this easy dish into my rotation! Thanks!

    Oh, that Taco salad looks so good. A perfect dish to make with a family gathering that is coming up. Thank you.
    Favorite spice….oh, my I have many but guess I would have to say cinnamon as I use lots of it in my baking but I also use lots of those Taco seasoning packets.
    Thank you for this opportunity
