We LOVE Mexican food, but many times it’s loaded with so many calories! This comfort Light Taco Casserole is perfect for feeding your Mexican food craving and not feeling guilty about it at all!
This casserole comes together in a matter of minutes and is perfect for a busy weeknight dinner.
How to make this Light Taco Casserole:
Saute onions and garlic in oil until tender.
Add in the ground beef and cook until no longer pink.
Dump in taco seasoning, black beans, and salsa.
Place crushed tortilla chips in the bottom of a 9×13″ pan.
Spread meat mixture on top of chips.
When adding chips to the bottom of the pan, try to use only enough to cover the bottom of the pan.
If desired, you can crush the chips down into the pan, breaking them into smaller pieces so that they lay better in the pan and it’s easier to put the meat mixture on top.
Sprinkle cheese on top of meat.
Bake and then top with your favorite taco toppings.
