The dish Frito Taco Casserole is a fun recipe that my family enjoys. I make a pan of it when I have some Fritos that need to be used up. This is one of those great recipes where you can add different ingredients if you wish to liven it up. Black beans, kidney beans, or green chili’s would work great. You can also use Fiesta corn, spicy refried beans or even Rotel instead of Salsa in a pinch. Whatever you think your family will eat.
You can eat the casserole just as it is, with some toppings or you can scoop it up with tortilla chips or wrap in a corn tortilla. Flexible is the key. I used chicken flavored rice that I had on hand. Any leftover rice will work.
I used my largest casserole dish, it’s not too fancy but it gets the job done. It’s similar to this one. I prefer it over my glass casserole dish because it’s deeper. I also used my new chopper to dice up the onions. It’s nice how quickly it works!
Frito Taco Casserole is a great comfort food that is a great way to use up leftovers, so very frugal, and yet your family will love it.
