What’s a girl to do when she has to do dinner, pronto? Open the fridge, dig out the leftover taco meat and whoa-la – Taco Casserole! It was a hit with the boys and tasted pretty darn good, if I do say so myself.


For those that care – here’s the recipe:

  • Taco meat – about 1 pound cooked and seasoned
  • crushed tortillas or leftover taco shells
  • shredded cheese
  • sliced black olives
  • diced tomatoes
  • shredded lettuce
  • salsa

1. Spread taco meat into casserole dish. I pre-heated the leftover taco meat in the microwave since I was pressed for time.

2. Spread with black olives and diced tomatoes.

3. Cover with crushed tortillas or taco shells.

4. Spread about 1 cup of shredded cheese over that.

5. Place in 400 degree preheated oven for about 15 minutes.

6. Remove from oven, spread shredded lettuce and salsa over top.

7. Enjoy!
