6 easy dinner recipes cheesy taco bake

I came across this delicious recipe for beefy taco bake on Facebook. The instructions are easy to follow and the ingredients are simple to get. You and your family are going to keep this yummy casserole on your meal plan rotation each month.

My husband and kids love eating Mexican foods so this yummy taco bake is right up our alley!



1 cup raw Spanish rice (I use Uncle Ben’s)

1 can black beans, rinsed

1 cup Green Giant frozen corn

1 lb lean ground beef

3 Tbsp taco seasoning

1/2 tsp McCormick cumin

1 – 2 Tbsp chopped canned jalapenos (according to personal preference)

1 can Campbell’s tomato soup plus 2 cans water

2 – 3 cups Kraft shredded marble or Mexican blend cheese

sliced avocado, salsa, sour cream and corn chips to serve alongside



Pour rice, black beans (drained and rinsed)  and corn into a 9×13 or similar type baking dish.

In a skillet, brown meat. Add seasonings, jalapeno, soup and water.

Pour meat mixture on top of rice, beans and corn.

Cover and bake for 30 minutes at 350 F, then add cheese, cover and bake another 10 minutes, until cheese is melted. (first time making this, check to see if the rice is done after 30 minutes. If not, add a tad more liquid and continue cooking until done)

Serve with choices of corn chips, salsa, sour cream and avocado


re-heat and fill large flour tortilla wraps, warmed, along with desired additions such as lettuce, cheese, salsa etc. OR

spoon into small flour tortillas, roll up and lay side by side in baking dish. Cover center of row with enchilada sauce and cheese. Bake 20 – 30  minutes at 350 F (covered)


Quick Tip: Make two of these casseroles and freeze one for a later date.



I don’t know why these recipes are put on the UK web site as most of the ingredients we can’t get here…..I must say thought that they all look delicious

All those ingredients are found here… who care the name of your eggs, butter, flour, starch, sauce etc…it is just a name.

I don’t think you have to use the brand names specified. If you can find, for instance, tomato soup, just buy the brand you can find. Doesn’t have to be Campbell’s.

I don’t like pasta dishes. But my fat does so I make them but tomato soup has enough sugar in it that I would eliminate the tesp.oc sugar that you add. I also use sea st, not Norton any flavor salt. Ionized or plain. Noodles in my day and pasta where never used simultaneously. Pasta is made from a different kind of grain than noodles. It states so on the package. I use noodles to combine with beef or chicken, some mix it with pork but in my opinion the pork used mostly is a bit greasy. I know I probably sound picky but my Mother made our tomato soup without the sugar and we four ragamuffins loved it. I believe to much of our food supply contains way more sugar than we need. Diabetics do without all that sugar and we should as well. I guess at 80 I’m a little more opinionated than some of your other readers.

Then make it to your liking. These easy recipes are for people with little spare time and need quick dinners. You don’t have to eat it every night. How condescending.
