There are so many different ways to customize this casserole to your preferences!

  • Protein: Try using ground turkey or chicken instead of the beef.
  • Beans: Pinto beans work well if you don’t have black beans on hand.
  • Tortillas: This recipe works well with both corn and flour tortillas, so choose whichever one your family prefers.
  • Cheese: I typically make this dish with cheddar cheese, but other great options are Monterey Jack, Colby and Pepper Jack.
  • Toppings: This casserole is wonderful as is, but it’s extra tasty topped with guacamole, sour cream, fresh cilantro and/or salsa.
