Taco Bake


If your family enjoys Taco Night, then this bake is definitely a must try. It is quite similar to “Walking Tacos”, however, this is an all in one casserole dish, so a bit easier. My kids LOVED the cheesy layer on this and we all loved adding our favorite taco toppings. You can add salsa, sour cream, tomatoes, onions, avocado, jalapeno, etc.



  • 1 lb ground turkey or beef
  • 1 package taco seasoning OR 3 tbsp homemade taco seasoning
  • 2/3 cup water
  • Chili Cheese Fritos
  • 1/2 can cheddar cheese soup
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • Toppings desired (salsa, sour cream, onion, tomato, avocado, etc)



  1. Brown beef or turkey over medium high heat until no longer pink.
  2. Drain fat and add in taco seasoning and water.
  3. Simmer on low for about 5 minutes, or until liquid is absorbed and meat is coated in seasoning.
  4. Layer Chili cheese Fritos on the bottom of an 8×8 baking dish.
  5. Place seasoned meat on top of Fritos.
  6. In a saucepan, heat cheddar cheese soup and milk over low heat. Once warm and combined, pour cheese over meat.
  7. Sprinkle mozzarella over cheese mixture.
  8. Place baking dish in preheated oven, 350, and bake for about 12-14 minutes.
  9. Remove from oven and scoop desired amount onto plate.
  10. Serve with desired toppings!!
