This easy recipe only requires a few simple ingredients. Basically, you’ll brown the meat first and then put everything together in your casserole dish. I have the full details of the recipe below. It’s fail-proof!

You can serve it with green beans, peas, or a nice green salad. And if you’re feeling like making it more of a fiesta, you can turn it into a John Wayne casserole recipe of sorts too. Just cook beef with taco seasoning to make that happen.

And if you want to make it a little healthier, try it with lean ground beef, ground turkey, or ground chicken.
