I miss the days of having dinner made for me every evening, ready on the table. There’s nothing like having a really rough day at work and having to come home and figure out what to make for dinner. Especially when your whole family keeps on complaining that they’re hungry and are ready to eat! That’s why I’m always up for a quick and easy dinner that doesn’t require a lot of thought or effort. Making dinner shouldn’t be a stressful or hectic part of our day. So when I finally found this dinner recipe for a taco casserole, I was ecstatic. Not only is this dinner recipe super easy, it’s super delicious too! Here’s how to get started.
- 1 1/2 lbs. 93% to 96% lean ground beef
