Beefy Taco Casserole

with Mixed Green Salad

Ever had a night where you just couldn’t decide what to have for dinner because there are just so many delicious things to make? This recipe is for you. We’re marrying two of our favorites—tacos and lasagna—to create a casserole that features lively Tex-Mex flavors in bubbly, baked form. As you savor the layers of meaty filling, tortillas, and cheese piled high, you’ll wonder why there aren’t more dishes that capture the best of both worlds so perfectly.

Utensils

Large Pan
Baking Dish

Instructions

Preheat and Prep
1

Wash and dry all produce. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Halve, peel, and finely chop onion. Mince or grate garlic. Thinly slice scallions.

Cook beef
2

Heat a drizzle of oil in a large pan over high heat. Add ground beef and break up into pieces with a spatula or wooden spoon. Cook until browned, 4-5 minutes. Stir in Mexican spice blend and season with salt and pepper. Remove from pan and set aside.

Make filling
3

Add onions, garlic, and a drizzle of oil to same pan over medium heat. Cook until softened, 4-5 minutes. Stir in 2 tsp Southwest spice blend (we sent more) and half the scallions. Cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in diced tomatoes and ground beef. Season with salt and pepper.

Assemble casserole
4

Place a layer of filling in a small baking dish (ours is 11 x 7). Top with 2 tortillas, tearing to fit. (TIP: It's OK if tortillas don't cover filling completely.) Add a layer of Monterey Jack cheese. Repeat with three more layers, finishing with a layer of filling and cheese.

Bake casserole and make salad
5

Bake casserole until melted and bubbling, 5-7 minutes. (TIP: For a golden and crispy top, heat broiler to high and broil casserole a further 2-3 minutes.) Meanwhile, halve lime. Halve grape tomatoes. Toss mixed greens and grape tomatoes in a large bowl with a squeeze of lime and a drizzle of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.

Finish and plate
6

Sprinkle casserole with remaining scallions. (TIP: If you have time, let rest a few minutes for cleaner slices.) Cut casserole into slices and serve with salad and a dollop of sour cream on the side.
