This Meatless Cheesy Taco Casserole is one of our favorite dinner recipes.  It’s one of those dishes that you don’t get sick of having multiple times a week (we love it that much).  Since trying to make more vegetarian meals for my family, I’ve had to figure out how to  change my original taco casserole recipe and that’s what I did for this dish.  Instead of ground beef, I’m adding in black beans and frozen corn.

Mix that with some elbow macaroni, fresh tomatoes, green peppers, tomato soup, taco seasoning mix and taco cheese and you have the perfect weeknight meal!  I don’t want to call this recipe healthy, because it does have the word “cheesy” in the title, but the recipe only calls for 3/4 cups of cheese and if you want you can even add less.    You could even skip the cheese if you want to!
