Easy Taco Bake #Recipe

This recipe idea was given to me by a reader on Facebook. Thank you Lane! She didn’t give me exact amounts so I put in what I thought would work. I think next time I’ll put more crushed chips on the bottom of the casserole because I’d like a little more crunch. I also forgot to buy black olives, darn it! This was one dinner that went over well in my house. The kids said it was a little spicy, but they tend to say that about the taco seasoning I use. Eventually they’ll get used to it, right? I was pretty proud of myself because the majority of the ingredients that went into this were organic. I’ve been trying to buy what I can in Organic lately. I’m nowhere near 100% organic, nor will I ever be, but I feel like I should try to do what I can, when I can.

  5. This recipe look great and really easy to make. The only thing I would try differently is making it with ground turkey instead. I like the idea of a crunch with the chips 🙂
