Taquito-lada Casserole

A super simple dinner idea that's ready in minutes!

Cinco de Mayo is next week. One of my favorite "holidays"! We always celebrate with a fiesta!

This year we are having a few people over for a Cinco de Mayo party instead of going out. I am making this delicious Taquito-lada Casserole. It is a quick and easy taquito enchilada casserole.

I used these yummy frozen José Olé Steak and Cheese Taquitos as the base of the casserole. I fell in love with the José Olé Steak and Cheese Taquitos at our Super Bowl party. We served a variety of José Olé snacks and made a yummy Spicy Chipotle Ranch dipping sauce. I stuffed myself silly with them. They were SO good!
José Olé has several flavors of taquitos:
  • Steak and Cheese Taquitos Coated in Spicy Nacho Cheese Flavor 
  • Chicken Taquitos Coated with Buffalo Ranch Flavor  
  • Steak Taquitos Coated in Chipotle BBQ Flavor 
  • Chicken Taquitos Corn Tortillas 
  • Shredded Steak Taquitos Corn Tortillas 
  • Chicken and Cheese Taquitos Flour Tortillas 
  • Steak and Cheese Taquitos Flour Tortillas
I chose the Steak and Cheese Taquitos because I think they are super delicious, but any of the varieties will work in this recipe.

This casserole couldn't be any easier. Just bake the taquitos covered in enchilada sauce and top with cheese. We topped the Taquito-ladas with some lettuce, tomatoes, green onions, olives and sour cream. 
To round out the celebration we served the Taquito-ladas with some margaritas, taco rice, chips and salsa. It was a fun and easy fiesta!
