Originally, I saw a version of this casserole in a magazine a long time ago and it was on my list of recipes to try to recreate. If you know what a walking taco is, then you also know it’s so good and weird unless you grew up with it. So a walking taco is ground beef, tomatoes, taco seasoning, green chiles, beans, lettuce and sour cream all on top of Fritos….inside of a Fritos bag. On the go. Genius.
This is the less portable but still delicious, casserole version of a walking taco. And it’s so good. Everything cooked in one pan so no crazy cleanup. Plus you can add all your favorite toppings. Mine are lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream…and more Fritos.
