Ground beef recipes can feel mundane once you’ve fallen into a routine, but this taco casserole is sure to add some excitement and flavor to the mix. If you love tacos but aren’t a fan of the hard or dry shells that are used to wrap them in, then taco casserole is going to be perfect for you because it softens the delicate tortilla chips, and you will no longer be limited to the amount of topping that you can stack inside of one, which means that it’s also a whole lot more filling than the traditional dish.

If a casserole recipe sounds like a more complicated edibles dish, then have no fear, because we promise that this one is ideal for both seasoned chefs who might wish to tweak things a bit and beginners to the art, and it’s all because of the simplicity of the ingredient used to infuse, which is an ideal dose of cannabis oil. You won't have to decarb or strain anything, and it won’t change the taste or texture that you’d expect from taco casserole, so you can make it as potent or low dosed as you like with ease.
