Yummy chicken taco casserole with avocados.
Total Time: 15 minutes to prep. 40 minutes to bake.
My guests went crazy when they tasted this Taco Lasagna. What a great party pleaser! It has everything you need. No need for chips, just plates and forks and good beverages. You can make this mild, medium or hot! I would suggest doing some items mild and some medium. It is a good mix.
If you are looking to do something with left over tortilla chips or something different with flour tortillas, try this recipe for Taco Bake.
Spray a 9x12 inch casserole dish with vegetable oil. Break up Doritos and put in casserole dish. Layer with ground beef, then chili, then cheese.
Brown ground chuck. Add chili powder and cream cheese. Simmer 5 minutes. Cook pasta shells; drain. Combine meat mixture and pasta. Place in a 9x13 inch pan. Pour taco sauce over top. Cover and bake at 350 degrees F for 15-20 minutes.
Recipes for making beef taco bake.
Super easy to make and inexpensive, too. Kids love this!
In skillet, cook beef over medium-high heat until browned, stirring to separate meat. Pour off fat.
This is a quick, cheap, adaptable recipe. You can add in extras (corn, etc) or make substitutions (ex: corn chips instead of crackers). Amounts of ingredients and cooking time will depend on size of casserole dish.
