Some of you guys might know I’m a little bit obsessive about my various spices, mixes and concoctions. I have quite a few Spice Mixes & Blends on my blog because if you have spices you can make almost anything. This Smoky Chipotle Taco Seasoning is one of my newer favorites.
My son, in particular, loves tacos. Hard, soft, he doesn’t care, but he has a particular affinity for tacos made from ground beef, and a love of deep rich flavors and a just little heat. (More heat as he’s gotten older! Can that kid go through the Sriracha now that he’s in his 20’s!) So we started making our Taco Seasoning Homemade, and don’t worry about that little mention of heat and Sriracha; this one is family-friendly.
What can I say about this casserole? All the appeal of tacos combined with a nacho like topping? That’s a win win in my book, because we love love love both of those things at our house! I tried it, thinking my teenager would like it. I was wrong, he wild about it. A little salsa, a few slices of avocado and a dab of sour cream added a little freshness to this substantial Fun Festive Taco Casserole.
