Beef and Black Bean Taco Bake


This is a beef spin on the Black Bean and Corn Chicken Taco Bake.  I was trying to come up with a dinner idea the other day and had all the ingredients except chicken.  But I had cooked ground beef in the freezer, so decided to give it a try.  It turned out really well.  Just as easy as the chicken version and just as tasty. 

Here’s what you’ll need:

Beef and Black Bean Taco Bake
  • 1 lb. ground beef, browned
  • 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 jar of black bean and corn salsa
  • 6-10 tortillas, corn or flour, cut into bite sized pieces
  • 2 cups cheddar or Mexican blend cheese, shredded
  • extra cheese for the top, if desired
  1. Mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl.
  2. Pour into a 9×13 casserole dish that has been sprayed with cooking spray.
  3. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 30-45 minutes.

    Do you think this would freeze well?

    • I’ve never tried to freeze it, but it seems like it should work fine. It’s similar to other dishes that I’ve frozen. Let me know how it works if you decide to try freezing it.

    • It would freeze better with corn tortillas, flour tends to get gummy when frozen in somethng like this.

  4. I’ve made this a few times, (including tonight.) It is always a hit!

  5. Visiting from Orgjunkie, looks like a kid and man pleasing meal idea, I will surely try this with my fellows.

  6. I love recipes with fresh corn tortillas. They are so economical and store so easy! Sounds yummy, thanks for the recipe!

  7. Yummy! I grew up with something really similar, except it uses chili instead of salsa and the ingredients are layered, so it’s like a Mexican version of lasagna.

  8. Do u defrost before putting in the oven?

    • Aimee, do you mean defrost the hamburger if it’s frozen? Yes, I put the cooked, frozen hamburger in the microwave for a minute to defrost it.

    • Aimee, I just saw that Money Saving Mom used this recipe as a freezer meal. I’ve never frozen it, but it might work best to thaw it in the fridge overnight before baking. You can probably put it directly in the oven from the freezer (start it in the cold oven and let the dish warm up with the oven, so you don’t break the casserole dish). It will take longer to bake. Maybe 1 1/2 – 2 hours.

  9. Do you think you could use hard taco shells in this instead of corn tortillas? Would they “soften up” during the baking, or would they not work?

  10. It was a big hit at my house!!! So good and easy to make!!!!

  11. I made this tonight specifically for the freezer. I also tossed in some shredded zucchini. If the smell is any indication, we are going to love this!

  12. I made it with the salsa I had on hand, no tortilla and added chopped onion to it. It is very delicious!!! I might cook my onions next time before making it but it was so easy and so good!!!
