Recipe Notes
NOTE: Taco Bake is a very simple recipe with limited ingredients. If you want to amp up the flavors and texture of this casserole, add a layer of any or all of the following: drained, whole kernel corn, drained pinto or black beans, sliced olives, diced red & green bell peppers, sliced jalapeno peppers, and green onions after the first layer of cheese is applied.
NOTE: A small amount of diced, seeded jalapeno peppers can be added to the meat mixture if you want more heat.
NOTE: If you want to increase the heat in the recipe try Pepper Jack cheese for all or part of the cheese.
NOTE: Do not overcook the recipe or the casserole can dry out.
NOTE: Extra cheese helps prevent the casserole from getting too dry.
