Taco Bake

This is one of my husbands favorite casseroles!


Taco Bake

  • 1 package taco seasoning mix
  • 1 can (15 oz) pinto beans or Progresso® black beans, drained, rinsed
  • 1 can (3.8 oz) sliced ripe olives, drained
  • 1 can (13.8 oz) Pillsbury® refrigerated classic pizza crust
  • ½ cup corn chips, crushed
  • 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese (8 oz)
  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F. Brown ground beef and drain. Stir in salsa and taco seasoning mix. Reduce heat; simmer uncovered 5 minutes.
  2. Stir beans and olives into beef mixture. Cook until thoroughly heated. Spoon into ungreased 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish. Unroll dough over the filling; sprinkle crushed corn chips over top.
  3. Bake 13 to 17 minutes until light golden brown. Sprinkle cheese evenly over chips; let stand 5 minutes to melt cheese. Serve with lettuce, tomato and sour cream or whatever else you put on your tacos!

Simply…from Pillsbury

This giveaway is now over. The winner is Bunny. Congrats!

I am a fan of Pillsbury products which is why I was excited to try some products from their Simply line. This line of dough contains zero grams trans fat, no high fructose corn syrup, and no artificial colors or flavors. It is super easy to make (open the container and put into your oven) that my husband even managed to make the Rustic French Bread without any help from me! What surprised me more than that was that this bread tastes homemade.  I never would have guessed that this came from a can!  It is literally that good.  The bread just melted in our mouthes, and I can’t imagine getting any other kind of french bread now.  It is really that good!  The biscuits were just as good too.

Since we loved these products, I want you to try it out yourself.  I’ve arranged for one lucky ready to received a Pillsbury Prize Pack that will include a jar of honey, spreader, cutting board, and basket.  Here’s what you need to do:
