Suggested toppings:IMG_7113

  • Avocado or guacamole
  • Sour cream
  • Chopped coriander/cilantro
  • Fresh lettuce, tomato and onion
  • Rice
  • Pico de gallo
  • Jalapeños/Chilis


  • This need not really be a casserole. Once you’ve heated everything through on the stove top, you can mix and match and serve it as you choose. For example, baking makes the tortilla chips a bit soggy, so if you added them after baking, you’d get more of a crunch.
  • Similarly, turn this into a taco salad by lining a bowl with crushed up tortilla chips (or Frito chips), then top with the mixture, cheese, lettuce, tomato and onion.
  • Or use the mixture inside tacos or enchiladas topped with sauce of your liking.
