This flavorful Taco Rice Casserole comes together quickly and is perfect for Taco Tuesday! Your family is sure to enjoy it!
Do you do Taco Tuesday at your house? We’re not super regular about it, but when I do add tacos to the menu, I make sure we eat them on Tuesday evening. 🙂 Because we just have to.
I love coming up with different ways to serve tacos. You might say I like to think “out of the shell”. Haha! This casserole is a perfect example of a variation of tacos that is super delicious, filling and totally family-pleasing! Plus, it makes a lot, so you probably won’t have to cook the next night!
Growing up, I hated eating leftovers, but now that I’m the one doing the cooking, I really don’t mind them. It’s funny how perspective can change. I remember complaining to my mom about having the same thing for dinner two nights in a row. And now my kids do the same. I tell them they’ll understand when they’re an adult and have the responsibility of cooking. It can get tiresome. And I don’t love doing the dishes that come from cooking. So when I can make a meal and coast for two nights, I’ll take it!
This taco rice casserole tastes incredible both nights that you eat it. Maybe even better the second night. We like to make it taste a little different the next evening by adding something to it like a hot sauce or a different topping. We bought some Mexican Street Corn packages at Costco and made one up to put on this when we enjoyed it as leftovers. It was phenomenal together!
This is a perfect meal for busy school nights! I can’t believe the kids will be starting back soon. Top it with your favorite taco toppings. We love tomatoes, lettuce and sour cream. But you can certainly add olives, salsa, or even crushed tortilla chips. Those would be yummy too!
I love a good casserole, don’t you? They’re so comforting and satisfying. They make the tummy happy! Here are a few of my favorite casseroles for you to try! They’re all so good!
Do you love tacos? Then you’ll love this casserole!
