Queso Taco Casserole

To be honest, I hardly had to cook at all this past week. I have been at my sisters dwelling in her Temporary Tent, and she is an excellent cook. 

This recipe is something I made the week before. It is one of my husband's favorites, and you can dress it up however you like with your favorite taco fixings. 

Queso Taco Casserole

  • 1 lb Ground Beef
  • 1 Small Onion, chopped
  • 1 8oz Bottle Taco Sauce
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 pkg. Taco Seasoning
  • 1 pkg. Corn Taco Shells, broken  OR Tortilla Chips
  • 2 cups Shredded Cheddar Cheese

Garnish Suggestions:  Chopped tomatoes, sliced green onions, sour cream, black olives.


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease a 13x5 inch baking dish.

Cook beef and onion in large skillet. Stir in taco sauce, water, and seasoning mix; Bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 3 to 4 minutes, stirring occasionally. 

Layer half of the broken shells on bottom of baking dish. Cover with half of the meat mixture. Sprinkle with 1 cup of cheese. Repeat with remaining ingredients.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until bubbly and cheese is melted. Garnish as desired.


I also baked peanut butter cookies for my son's birthday treat (one of many.)

And because I was in such a baking mood that week, I tried this recipe from Valley Ridge Recipes 
for 1 Hour Cinnamon Rolls, and they turned out great! 

I found the recipe thanks to Pinterest.
