Taco Salad Cassorole 

Hello October!!

I believe fall is for casseroles and comfort food.

It is such a pleasure to be a part of the Southern Women’s Show this year in Birmingham, AL.  I felt my taco salad casserole would the perfect fall dish to share with the audience.
I shared an easy taco salad casserole recipe on the cooking stage on Thursday.  It was a big hit and everyone loved it.  The guest were so excited to see how you can take a taco salad and turn it into a totally different meal by just substituting one ingredient.

My taco salad casserole recipe will be great for an easy week night meal, Cinco De Mayo, game day and many more.

 

Ingredients

1 8 oz can  original crescent roll

1 16 oz of ground turkey

2 cups of original shredded Velveeta cheese

1 package of McCormick Taco Season

1 can of Pam Spray

Instructions

Spray the glass baking dish with pam spray  and press the crescent rolls out in the glass baking dish. Bake the crescents on 350 until brown.

Fry the ground turkey until brown and drain the grease off.  Add your McCormick taco season to your ground turkey and follow instructions on the package.

Add your ground turkey on top of the crescents and sprinkle the shredded cheese on top.  Place the casserole back in the oven for 5-10 minutes or until the cheese has melted.

Optional Additional Toppings:  Lettuce, Tomatoes, Sour Cream, Taco Sauce, Jalapeno Peppers

 


Open Faced Mexican Stromboli

When I first tried this recipe I couldn’t imagine how Mexican and Italian could go together. I was wowed by the mixture after taking one bite and have been making them every since. This open faced Mexican Stromboli will be one of your family favorites after you try it. This recipe is super easy and full of flavor.
