If you ever want to know just how much you don’t have it all together, sign your kids up for 9 am swim lesson during the summer. What in the world was I thinking when I did that? I ask myself that every single day as I am waking up the baby from his morning nap, peeling my kids from their morning cartoons to get their suits on, trying to entertain a 2 year old for 45 minutes in the hot sun, and attempting to soothe a teething tired baby while trying to handle said 2 year old.

I learned pretty quickly that I am a hot mess! I probably signed up for 9 am swim lessons on a day that I was feeling super motivated. I mean there has to be some logical explanation for it, right?! 🙂

On stressful busy days the last thing I want to deal with are my kids complaining about dinner. Sometimes I just want a dinner that I know they will eat up with no complaints. This beef taquito enchilada casserole is exactly that. 

A simple mixture of corn, rice, beans, cheese, taco seasoning and enchilada sauce is topped with frozen beef taquitos. Serve with your favorite taco toppings and let everyone devour. Kids will love being able to eat the taquitos with their hands and you will love how easy it is to make.

No chopping or pre-cooking needed. Just mix it up in one bowl.

I don’t use frozen foods often but this casserole is an exception to that. The taquitos get nice and crispy and the casserole part has so much flavor it. The toppings are what really take it over the top. Sour cream, guacamole, cilantro, chopped tomatoes, olives, more cheese are just a few of our favorites. But anything goes.

But my favorite part is the no chopping and no pre-cooking. It could not be easier to make and I would even bet the kids could make it themselves.

The recipe calls for cooked rice so it’s a great way to use up some leftover rice. We love this cilantro lime rice and luckily there was some leftovers in the fridge so that’s what I used. You can use any rice you want as long as it’s already cooked. 

You can also control the spice level. If you want more mild use Colby Jack or Monterey Jack and mild enchilada sauce. For a kick use pepper jack cheese and medium or hot enchilada sauce.

    July 31, 2017 at 3:19 am This is a great, easy meal idea. My whole family ate it up. We did modify with ingredients we had on hand. I used brown rice and just taco seasoning and beans and corn. I'm not a fan of enchilada sauce. I only had chicken taquitos, but would really like to try the beef kind. Also, I like adding a little sour cream and avocado on top as suggested. Thanks, I really needed a quick to put together, summer meal.

      August 1, 2017 at 11:56 pm I love that you adapted it to what you had on hand! And yes, the sour cream and avocado really is a must :) I am not a huge fan of enchilada sauce either but somehow it works in this for me. You can also use the green enchilada sauce. That has a different, more tolerable flavor (at least in my opinion).
