A delicious frito casserole that only takes one pot and twenty minutes!
Frito taco casserole is a family favorite for all ages. This one pot version is perfect for those busy nights!
We had a lot of casseroles growing up.
And if you’ve been following our recipes here for very long, you’ll know that I’ve carried that “tradition” on to my little family as well.
I always joke that if I ever went on MasterChef, I’d probably just come up with casseroles for every challenge…and I’d probably be promptly sent home.
But really, there’s no shame in the casserole game. They are easy, tasty, and family friendly – three crucial requirements in my book.
My mom would sometimes make Frito corn chip casserole, and it was definitely one of my favorite dishes. I loved how the Frito chips would slightly soften up, and it just tasted oh-so-delicious with cream of mushroom soup and ground beef.
Of course, Frito casserole isn’t the healthiest recipe around…but it is definitely delicious.
The other day, I decided I wanted to make it. I honestly am not sure if I’ve ever actually made it since we’ve been married, so I was excited to try it out.
I do try to avoid using cream of mushroom (or chicken, or whatever) soups, so I made my own cream of mushroom soup was the base. I made everything in one pot, and I finished it over in the oven.
It turned out really yummy! I added a few new ingredients – such as black beans, red peppers, and red onions – but I think it was great. It wasn’t Jack’s favorite meal, but Forrest, Oliver, and I all really enjoyed it.
