This cheesy taco bake comes together in no time and is a family favorite! Perfect for Taco night!
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.
