Taco Casserole

My family loves flavorful meals and I love experimenting with spices but I also like quick and easy dishes. Once my kids are home from school I need to spend time talking to them about their day and helping them with homework and once my husband is home I don’t feel like spending a lot of time in the kitchen.

Sitting down together as a family is important to me. It’s the perfect time to discuss the events of the day and enjoy each others company. It’s even better when everyone likes what was prepared. This Taco Casseroleis the perfect quick and flavorful meal and everyone can even add their favorite sides or toppings.

McCormick identified the top 10 most searched dinner recipe terms of 2012 and matched them with simple and flavorful McCormick recipes. This recipe took about 20 minutes from start to finish. Perfect for a busy  family. These are the only ingredients plus the ground beef.

I love the flavor of the McCormick original taco seasoning. Hubby said it was the best he’s ever tasted. He made me promise to add the Taco Casserole to our usual meal rotation. I have family coming to visit in a few weeks and I’ve been trying to come up with easy but yummy meals for the week. This Taco Casserole was just added to the list.

I think you’re going to want to run to the store and get the ingredients for tonight.

    I absolutely LOVE McCormick Ground Cinnamon. I love to use it on so many things especially in the Fall! Apples, pumpkin, bread and so much more!

  • NaDell October 10, 2013, 9:20 am

    Taco seasoning or brown gravy are always stocked in my cupboard! We use the brown gravy with French dips sometimes.

  • NaDell October 10, 2013, 9:24 am

    Jammin’ Jerk Chicken sounds like it’d be a good one to try.

  • Gina October 10, 2013, 10:18 am

    I rely on cumin and garlic powder . Just bought more of both yesterday! The casserole looks good – will have to try that.

  • Kimber October 10, 2013, 12:39 pm

    I love how quick and easy this was. The less ingredients the better in my book. I am eyeing those slow cooker spices in the box!

  • Kimber October 10, 2013, 12:41 pm

    I want to try the bag and season chicken and dumplings! YUM!

  • Tasha October 10, 2013, 1:24 pm

    I’d love to try the Asian blend

  • Nancy October 10, 2013, 2:54 pm

    I always have McCormick seasonings in my kitchen: I use the Italian Seasoning, Minced Onions, and Garlic Salt, but I also use the envelopes of Taco, Pulled Pork/Pork Roast and gravy (chicken and brown/beef) mixes. I like the flavors and I love the convenience! Thank you for a great new recipe!

  • Pat F. October 10, 2013, 9:10 pm

    McCormick is a staple in our house! We love the McCormick packets (gravies, taco mix, meatloaf) as well as all their spices (garlic, cinnamon and sugar, lemon-pepper, basil, oregano, poultry seasoning, nutmeg, chives, garlic bread sprinkle etc.) We are fans! I recently bought my first Slow Cooker and am anxious to sample their Slow Cooker spices. Thanks for the opportunity to try out some of their best sellers!

    I grew up with my mom making tacos, enchaladas, and using spices from McCormick so of course I always use it too! Love how easy it makes things! My favorite spice is cinnamon for sure, especially this time of year!

    The garlic powder has been a staple in our cupboard for as long as I can remember!

  • Tia October 16, 2013, 8:08 am

    I love the garlic herb wine one – I use it on a lot of my meats with lime.

  • Debra October 16, 2013, 8:45 am

    This looks so good! We use a lot of basic spices in our house, garlic, pepper, red pepper. We like our spices!

  • Maggie October 16, 2013, 8:53 am

    I’m (slightly) embarrassed to admit I’m more of a microwaver than a cook and I’m not a huge spice user. That being said, though, I really like McCormick’s taco mix.

    And, after reading the above comments, it’s going to be hard to try to pin done just one spice I want to try. The cinnamon one sounds fabulous but I think I’m going to have to try the garlic herb wine one, too.

  • Kari October 16, 2013, 9:12 am

    This looks so good! I love simple recipes that taste delicious but aren’t hard to create

  • Aimee C October 16, 2013, 10:07 am

    Love all McCormick Spices. Well all the ones that i’ve tried at least 🙂

  • Aimee C October 16, 2013, 10:08 am

    I think I’d like to try the carbonara Recipe. That’s one of my favorite things to order at the cheesecake factory, so I’d like to try making my own 🙂

  • Jesseca October 16, 2013, 7:33 pm

    We love the McCormick Slow Cookers! That taco casserole looks like it would be the perfect quick and easy dinner. Nice for nights when you are in a rush and not sure what to make!

    We tried the pork chops recently and they were a hit!

  • Paula@SweetPea October 20, 2013, 5:12 am

    I love basil! McCormick slow cooker helpers would be great for my lifestyle. I leave early in the morning and it would be great to come home to a house that smells good and to have dinner ready.

  • Amanda Hingston October 21, 2013, 4:12 pm

    My go to is garlic. We use a lot of it. I would love to try the slow cooker sweet and smoky pulled pork.

    McCormick grill mates, yeah! Spices are so much fresher than other brands.

  • Sheila October 21, 2013, 8:43 pm
