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!


  • 1 pound 90% extra lean ground beef
  • 1 can (10 3/4 ounces) Campbell’s® Condensed Tomato Soup
  • 1 cup Pace® Picante Sauce
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 8 corn tortilla (6-inch) or 6 flour tortillas (8-inch), cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese or Monterey Jack cheese (about 4 ounces) (amount divided in recipe steps below)


  • Tips

    • Top with your favorite taco or nacho toppings like sour cream, pickled jalapeño slices and/or chopped fresh cilantro.
    • Easily add some fiber and flavor by adding 1 cup each canned black beans and whole kernel corn with the soup before baking!
  • Step 1

    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.

  • Step 2

    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.

  • Step 3

    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.
