When I make this casserole, I use sour cream instead of mayonnaise and crushed Nacho Cheese Doritos. If you don't have the individual spices, taco seasoning works out great. I like to serve this with little bowls of chopped sides, like tomatoes, black olives, shredded lettuce, homemade salsa........
This was okay. It is better if you add sour cream at the table.
The texture was a bit thick and tacky.
I didn't like the flavour very much. But, to be fair, I don't like the flavour of taco meat (when I make tacos, I don't add seasoning to the meat), so I'm a bit biased.
The tortilla chips layered in were yummy.
I replaced the mayo with 1/2 cup plain nonfat Greek yogurt; the chili power and cumin with canned taco seasoning, taco sauce for the salsa, 1/2 pound ground beef in place of a pound, and used a mix of shredded "Mexican" cheese. Slightly sauteed the onion when the beef was almost done, and added a can of nonfat refried beans to the sauce mixture. We ate with diced tomatoes, shredded lettuce and sliced jalapeños on top. It was yummy and pretty healthy (tortilla chips aside). Thanks for sharing!
Made this for dinner last night and it was quite yummy! Used sour cream instead of mayo, and cayenne pepper in place of the cumin and chili powder. Pretty spicy but yummy and quick to put together.
Easy Taco Casserole Haiku: "Totally easy. Swapped sour cream for mayo. Served with lots of 'stuff.'" I don't think I wouldn't liked this nearly as much w/ mayo, so I used sour cream, along w/ a Mexi-blend of cheese, rather than the 2 different types called for. One bite of it by itself was "mmm tasty", but eating w/ cilantro, tomatoes, lettuce, and extra hot sauce? Taco-transcendent!
I thought I would try this recipe since it seemed an easy weeknight dinner. I followed the original recipe only adding sour cream on the side when served. My husband LOVED it! I enjoyed it as well and our 20 month old son gobbled it up! Definitely going to save this one in my 'favorites' folder to make again. Thanks for the recipe!
Husband loved it! I USED mayo; thought it gave extra flavor. No cumin, just chili powder. 1 1/2 lbs ground beef, a 15 oz. jar of mild salsa, cup of diced onion, and BBQ corn chips. It was quick and wonderful!
I thought this recipe was great, I used hot Italian sausage meat rather than ground beef. I also used Light Miracle Whip. I have a very fussy bunch in my home, and they all loved it, and want it again. If they request it be repeated then it will never rate less than 5 stars!

Pile it into a tomato half, load it into a wrap, or spread it on bread. Chicken salad does it all.
Broccoli salad makes a great side dish or a light main dish on a warm night.
