Mexican Casserole - The Helper Taco Casserole

This Mexican Casserole recipe is very delicious. This is for a large amount so size it down accordingly.

  • 3 lbs ground beef or whatever ground protein you desire
  • 3 Packets Taco Seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1 green bell pepper chopped - optional
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 2 (10 oz) cans diced tomatos with green chiles (Rotel), undrained
  • 1 can golden corn (not creamed) or hominy corn
  • 1 (10 3/4 oz) can cream of chicken soup, undiluted
  • 1 small 8 oz or less taco sauce (temp dependent on how hot you want it) or can of enchilada sauce (same heat on enchilada sauce)
  • 12-18 (6 in.) corn tortillas (depending on how thick you want your tortilla layers)
  • 4 Cups (16 oz) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 13x9x2 baking dish
  • Large skillet
  • Make Taco Meat as per Directions on your taco seasoning packet and set aside
  • Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat
  • Add chopped bell pepper, corn (optional) and onion and cook stirring constantly until tender crisp
  • Remove from heat and stir in meat, diced tomatoes and chiles (rotel), enchilada sauce and/or taco sauce and soup
  • You will need a pretty good sized pot or pan to fit everything once it is mixed
  • Place one third of the Tortilla Quarters in the bottom of a lightly greased 13x9x2 baking dish
  • Top with 1/3 of the taco mixture, and sprinkle evenly with 1/3 of the shredded cheese
  • Repeat layers twice reserving the last third of the cheese
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes uncovered
  • Remove from oven and sprinkle on reserve 2/3 cup of cheese and bake uncovered for an additional 5 minutes
  • Let stand at least 5 minutes before serving
  • Makes 8 to 10 Servings.

I had Taco's just the other day (this website actually made me try 'em for the first time a while back). :p

I'll have to try this. :D
If only I got more people in my house to eat this together...I was hoping for a smaller, 1 or 1½ servings version of The Helper Recipes. Don't have much money now that I had bought some gifts since Christmas. I do love The Helper for sharing with all of this. It was totally unexpected for a tech forum to share cooking topics. :D
If you want a half serving cut the ingredients in half. Only use a pound of hamburger meat and one pack of seasoning, and half as much of everything else. Still cook it for the same amount of time though and do everything else the same. If you want smaller then just keep proportionally reducing the ingredients. You will need something to bake it in though if you go smaller than a pan you have.
If I get to more than 5 of them I will start to organize them.
What's this? TheHelper Cookbook (and Co.)?
Isn't it awesome?
You should learn to cook! It is definitely very important. You know.
Well, It doesn’t make any difference whether you are a Male or a Female. lol

I agree, I can't tell you how many times "Come over, I'll cook you dinner" or something of the such has worked for me. haha
You'd be surprised how much girls like having dinner cooked for them. It will work out in your favor if you can cook. ;)
This recipe is under review. I am going to make a scaled down version of this and update the recipe to that instead of the current one. The current recipe does not scale down to a pound of meat right now like I want it to. If you are doing 3 lbs of meat though, this recipe hits it there!

Help Users
  • No one is chatting at the moment.
  • The Helper The Helper: is a link to the old news portal - i will integrate it into the interface somewhere when i figure it out
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Need to try something
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Hopefully this won't cause problems.
  • Ghan Ghan:
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I have converted the Headline News forum to an Article type forum. It will now show the top 20 threads with more detail of each thread.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    See how we like that.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I do not see a way to go past the 1st page of posts on the forum though
  • The Helper The Helper:
    It is OK though for the main page to open up on the forum in the view it was before. As long as the portal has its own URL so it can be viewed that way I do want to try it as a regular forum view for a while
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Yeah I'm not sure what the deal is with the pagination.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    It SHOULD be there so I think it might just be an artifact of having an older style.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I switched it to a "Standard" article forum. This will show the thread list like normal, but the threads themselves will have the first post set up above the rest of the "comments"
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I don't really get that article forum but I think it is because I have never really seen it used on a multi post thread
  • Ghan Ghan:
    RpNation makes more use of it right now as an example:

    What do you think Tom?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    I will have to get used to this.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    The latest news feed looks good
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I would like to see it again like Ghan had it the first time with pagination though - without the pagination that view will not work but with pagination it just might...
  • The Helper The Helper:
    This drink recipe I have had more than a few times back in the day! Mind Eraser
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Happy Thursday!
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I'm not so sure, there's still a lot of Thursday left for it to become unhappy.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    still a few hours
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Its Friday!!!!
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Thursday 7/10 would Thursday again
