Beef Taco Bake is one of our most popular recipes, and it's not hard to see why. It's oven-ready in 15 minutes and it tastes like everything you love about tacos all in one dish! Buy a package of ground beef and pull the rest of the ingredients right from your pantry. Saute the beef, then simmer with a mixture of condensed tomato soup, picante sauce and chili powder. Then, just stir in cut up tortillas and cheese and bake! The flavors are balanced and family-friendly and you can serve with your favorite nacho or taco toppings so everyone can make it their own!

Heat the oven to 400°F. While the oven is heating, season the beef with salt and pepper. Cook the beef in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat until well browned, stirring often to separate meat. Pour off any fat.
Stir in the soup, picante sauce, water, chili powder, tortillas and 1/2 cup cheese. Season with salt and pepper. Spoon the beef mixture into an 8x8x2-inch baking dish. Cover the baking dish.
Bake for 30 minutes or until the beef mixture is hot. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 cup cheese (the heat from the beef mixture will melt it) and serve hot.

We make this recipe often. I double the ingredients and I use tortilla chips instead of the flour tortillas. I also add taco seasoning to the recipe. We serve it with taco chips to scoop it up. It's always a hit!
I make this recipe often. I double the recipe. I season the meat as I would for tacos. I use taco chips in place of the tortilla strips. It is a favorite in our home.
We Use Chicken!!
My family loves this recipe! We use chicken instead of beef and I use enchilada sauce in stead of the salsa. My family asks for it weekly!
I've been making this casserole for well over 20 years. I bought a Campbell's recipe book at my kid's school and this was an extension of a meatloaf recipe. I liked it and my kids all love it! I've had to give this recipe out many times. Thank you!
Love this recipe!
I have made this recipe for several years, its good the way it is, but I have tweaked some, I add diced bell pepper, diced onion, and garlic. I also double the recipe.
