Are you ready for some real Tex-Mex flavor that makes for the yummiest thing you’ll eat all week? We’ve got a taco hash brown casserole that combines our love of all things tacos and transforms it into a dish that can feed a crowd without you having to individually wrap each delicious taco. Now that really is beautiful. This dish has ground beef, veggies, cream cheese – it bakes up way smoother and tangier than crema – plus it’s got potato perfection in their thanks to the hash brown top layer. You don’t even know how good this stuff is!
Not only are we totally hooked on this dish because of its deliciousness, but we also can’t get over how easy it is to make…and you know we love a recipe that lets us actually enjoy eating it with our family instead of one where we have to cook and serve while others eat (so that the food isn’t cold by the time everyone comes together). This is packed with protein and veggies, has tons of flavor and is a complete meal that means you don’t have to worry about any side dishes. This is an addictively yummy taste of Texas and you won’t want to miss it!
