Taco Casserole

The holidays are quickly approaching and I don’t know about you, but I am always looking for meals that simplify my day. I would much rather be decking the halls than peeling potatoes, if you catch my drift. This recipe screams simplicity and Mexican (two of my favorite things) all rolled up into one! You can’t ask for anything better. Even though it is a casserole, I found it to be good wrapped in a tortilla, as well. Also, feel free to add what you like: sour cream, guacamole, corn, etc. The sky’s the limit!
