  7. Bake: Bake in the preheated oven for about 20-25 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  8. Optional Toppings: Once out of the oven, top the casserole with chopped fresh cilantro, diced tomatoes, sliced green onions, and a dollop of fat-free Greek yogurt or light sour cream if desired.
  9. Serve: Slice and serve the taco casserole.


  • Vegetarian Option: You can make this casserole vegetarian by using plant-based ground meat alternatives or additional beans.
  • Tortilla Chips: If you’d like a bit of crunch, you can crush a few baked tortilla chips on top before serving.
  • Portion Control: Pay attention to portion sizes to stay within your desired point range.
