Fantastic Taco Casserole

Our supper from last night was so good I thought for sure the girl would have fought it for sure as she is not a fan of casseroles at all no matter what is in it! This would be great to take to a pot luck as well I made it in a much larger glass dish and it turned out wonderfully! The only this i did different was the refried beans we used had green chilies added and the boy wasn't a fan at all so plain beans for sure next time and I will make my taco meat like I do for taco salad! (Add Catalina dressing!) Also this apparently originally came from Taste of Home years ago!
