Use up all those odds and ends in the freezer, fridge and pantry and make a delicious taco casserole. Don't toss those few extra shells or seasoning. Make this delicious, easy, flexible taco casserole recipe!
In a skillet brown the ground beef, onion and bell pepper.
Once browned add in the taco seasoning, beans, water, salsa and frozen corn. Mix together and allow the mixture to thicken and warm through. While that's happening blister your tortillas in dry cast iron pan or over the open flame of a gas stove.
Cut the tortillas into strips and stir them into the mixture.
If the pan you're using isn't oven friendly, transfer it to a dish (I used 11x8 size), top with cheese and diced jalapeno and bake at 375 degrees for 25 minutes or until the cheese is bubbly and browned a bit.
Serve in a bowl with lettuce, sour cream, tomatoes, jalapenos, cilantro and avocado if desired.
