What is your family's favorite comfort food dish? My family loves when I make a super easy and super good Tater Taco casserole. I make this dish at least twice a month and I have friends of ours that will stay for dinner when I make this dish. I learned a version of this casserole from my mom and over the years added my own way of making it.

allinonepanIn a large skillet, cook beef over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in taco seasoning, 2 cans re-fried beans and water. Simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Stir in corn and half of a cream cheese brick.

Now you can eat this just as it is, with a flour tortilla, over toast or over chips. This is just a few other ways my family and I love to eat this mix.

ttcasseroleTransfer mix to a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Arrange tortilla shells in a single layer to cover the bottom on the dish and put about 2 scoops of mix in the dish and spread out evenly. Sprinkle cheese over the top and repeat the step again. You can do 2 or 3 layers. I do 2 because my family likes more filling than tortilla shells.

ttcasseroleAfter you get your layers done the hard part starts. You now have to arrange Tater Tots in a single layer over the top. I like using small tater hash browns from time to time. I pretty much decide by what is on sale that week. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 30-35 minutes or until potatoes are crispy and golden brown.

  1. Your Tater Taco Casserole looks delicious. We’ve used Tater Tots on a regular casserole and I would like to try it with your taco casserole.

  2. I enjoyed reading and checking out the pictures of your Tater Taco Casserole! It’s different! I’ve never had taco meat with cream cheese and corn before. We generally make it very plain. My hubby likes the hard taco shells, I don’t know why because he never tried the others! This looks like a good recipe to use in a pinch! I wonder if I bought the tortilla like you have and just do my regular taco recipe, and layered it with the cheese and then the tater tots or hash browns, if he would try it. I’m going to have to get me some of those tortilla’s and give it a try one night and just make it! It’s either eat it or starve kinda thing! LOL Thanks so much for the recipe and all the great pictures! I truly appreciate it! Thanks again, Michele 🙂
