  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 packet taco seasoning
  • 1 (10.5 oz) can of Ro-Tel diced tomatoes and green chilies
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 (9.25 oz) bag of Fritos
  • 2 cups shredded lettuce
  • 1 cup diced tomatoes
  • ½ cup diced onions

  1. Brown the Beef: In a large skillet, cook the ground beef until it’s no longer pink. Drain any excess fat.
  2. Flavor Bomb: Add the taco seasoning and Ro-Tel tomatoes. Stir until well combined and let it simmer for about 5 minutes.
  3. Layering Time: Spread half of the Fritos on the bottom of a casserole dish. Top with half of the beef mixture, followed by half of the cheese. Repeat these layers once more.
  4. Bake it: Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Place the casserole in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the cheese is bubbly and golden.
  5. Final Touch: Once baked, top with shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, onions, and any desired toppings like sour cream, salsa, or jalapeños.
