Mexican Casserole - The Helper Taco Casserole

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

Ingredients:
  • 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
Instructions:
  • Make Taco Meat as per Directions on your taco seasoning packet and set aside

  • 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

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.

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!

    Hmm, how do I change my signature?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Signatures can be edit in your account profile. As for the old stuffs, I'm thinking it's because Blizzard is now under Microsoft, and because of Microsoft Xbox going the way it is, it's dreadful.

    @tom_mai78101 I must be blind. If I go on my profile I don't see any area to edit the signature; If I go to account details (settings) I don't see any signature area either.

    Crazy how much 3d printing has come in the last few years. Sad that it's not as easily modifiable though
  • Varine Varine:
    I bought an Ender 3 during the pandemic and tinkered with it all the time. Just bought a Sovol, not as easy. I'm trying to make it use a different nozzle because I have a fuck ton of Volcanos, and they use what is basically a modified volcano that is just a smidge longer, and almost every part on this thing needs to be redone to make it work
  • Varine Varine:
    Luckily I have a 3d printer for that, I guess. But it's ridiculous. The regular volcanos are 21mm, these Sovol versions are about 23.5mm
  • Varine Varine:
    So, 2.5mm longer. But the thing that measures the bed is about 1.5mm above the nozzle, so if I swap it with a volcano then I'm 1mm behind it. So cool, new bracket to swap that, but THEN the fan shroud to direct air at the part is ALSO going to be .5mm to low, and so I need to redo that, but by doing that it is a little bit off where it should be blowing and it's throwing it at the heating block instead of the part, and fuck man
  • Varine Varine:
    I didn't realize they designed this entire thing to NOT be modded. I would have just got a fucking Bambu if I knew that, the whole point was I could fuck with this. And no one else makes shit for Sovol so I have to go through them, and they have... interesting pricing models. So I have a new extruder altogether that I'm taking apart and going to just design a whole new one to use my nozzles. Dumb design.
  • Varine Varine:
    Can't just buy a new heatblock, you need to get a whole hotend - so block, heater cartridge, thermistor, heatbreak, and nozzle. And they put this fucking paste in there so I can't take the thermistor or cartridge out with any ease, that's 30 dollars. Or you can get the whole extrudor with the direct driver AND that heatblock for like 50, but you still can't get any of it to come apart
  • Varine Varine:
    Partsbuilt has individual parts I found but they're expensive. I think I can get bits swapped around and make this work with generic shit though
