This Weight Watchers Taco Casserole Recipe is a variation of my favorite Weight Watchers Taco Casserole (made with chicken). I'd love it if you tried them both and told me which one was your favorite!
I like making casseroles all the time, but especially for events like the Super Bowl, or really any holiday. It's super easy to throw a casserole in the oven and then bring it to a friend's house. I'm all about impressing people with my mad cooking skillz though, so if I bring a casserole it's gotta be pretty damn amazing. Fortunately, this taco casserole recipe IS!
If you love taco dishes, try my Weight Watchers Taco Dip, too!
Weight Watchers Taco Casserole Recipe
With Weight Watchers, you can eat anything in moderation. I'm constantly swapping ingredients to make things more flavorful with less points. I follow the PointsPlus system, but I know many of you use SmartPoints. Because of that, I'm working on converting all of my recipes to PointsPlus and SmartPoints.
When cooking with processed ingredients like taco sauce, pasta sauce, etc, you can easily sub those out for fresh seasonings and veggies to reduce the point count. If you're not following Weight Watchers, feel free to add in some tortillas (this casserole would be amazing wrapped up in a tortilla… omg) or even put some chips on top!
1 package soy crumbles or 1 lb ground beef
1/2 diced white onion
1 can whole kernel corn
1 can black beans
1 tbsp taco seasoning
2 tbsp taco sauce
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2-1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup diced fresh tomatoes
1/3 cup green onions
96% lean ground beef, nonfat sour cream and 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese = 6 SP and 6 PP. With crumbles and same other ingredients = 4 SP and 4 PP. Points are per 1/2 cup serving.
Saute meat or soy crumbles, onions, taco seasoning, sauce and corn on medium-high heat until cooked through.
Spoon half your meat mixture in an even layer in the casserole dish, top with a thin layer of sour cream, then sprinkle with some cheese.
Repeat. Cover with cheese.
Bake at 350 for 15 minutes, then serve topped with diced tomatoes and green onions.
