Easy Cheesy Taco Bake Recipe
Prep Time:
Cook Time:
  • 1 large yellow onion, diced
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 3 tablespoons taco seasoning
  • 1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes
  • 1 (10.5-ounce) can black beans, drained
  • 1 (8.75-ounce) can corn, drained
  • 1 (12-ounce) bag of tortilla chips
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
Optional Ingredients
  • sliced avocado
  • sour cream
  • cilantro
  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add the diced onions and sweat down until almost soft and slightly golden (about 5-7 minutes), stirring occasionally.
  3. Once onions are soft, add the beef and taco seasoning to the skillet. Using a spatula or wooden spoon, break up the ground beef and toss to combine. Cook for about 4-5 minutes, or until beef is almost cooked through.
  4. Add the tomato with its liquid, along with the drained black beans and corn. Increase the heat, toss to combine, and cook down for around 5-6 minutes or until some liquid has evaporated. Remove the skillet from the heat.
  5. To assemble the taco bake, use your hands to crush up about 1 cup of chips to cover the bottom of the 9x12-inch glass baking dish. Layer half of the beef mixture on top of the chips then cover with 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese. Repeat this process.
  6. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the cheese has melted.
  7. Let the taco bake cool for 10 minutes, then serve with desired toppings, such as sliced avocado, sour cream, chopped cilantro, and extra tortilla chips.
