If you are like me, you are super busy during the week and you are always looking for quick things you can throw together for your family that still actually taste homemade and good for that matter. My husband and I are both teachers and coaches so our time is very limited. I love this taco casserole because I can get home, throw it together and it is super yummy on top of that! WIN/WIN am I right?? Do you have that one recipe you always go to because its quick?

Place beans in bottom of pan. You can use either black, pinto or refried beans. Add sour cream on top of that.

Put ground beef and guacamole on top of the sour cream.

Drain corn and place a can of corn on top of the guacamole.

Sprinkle one cup of shredded cheese then place in oven at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.

Take out of oven and add olives, tomatoes and fritos. Place back in oven for additional 5 minutes.

Take out of the oven and then add lettuce and additional cup of cheese.
