Tips: This was a wonderful taco casserole! There is now a Post-it on this page in my cookbook with a note from my husband "Make this again soon!". The tortilla chips are a great addition and I would recommended serving some on the side as well. I also shared this recipe at Blessed with Grace's Tempt My Tummy Tuesday.
