This Weight Watchers Taco Casserole Recipe is a variation of my favorite Weight Watchers friendly Taco Casserole (made with chicken).

I like making casseroles all the time, but especially for family dinners, holidays and even events like the Super Bowl. They are just easy and always taste great and this one, at just one WW point, is a GREAT one.

If you love taco dishes, try my Weight Watchers Friendly Taco Dip and Zero Point Chicken Taco Soup, 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.

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! Make sure you use my Homemade SALT-FREE taco seasoning with this recipe!

    1. The directions say it makes 6 servings and the points are listed next to it for the various WW programs. :). So you can eat 1/6 of it.

  1. I made this for my picky family last night. They loved it! My husband said, “This is a keeper!”

  2. I really need to know what size casserole dish . That makes a huge difference in points . Also for those asking it says 8 servings is 11 smart points and 6 servings is 6 smart points. BUT if you don’t have the casserole size dish it won’t be correct …

    1. The recipe itself doesn’t change no matter what size the casserole dish is, so it’s not that important. :) However, a 2qt dish works just as well as a 9×9 square dish would work. Here’s the one I use: http://amzn.to/2k4fUNc

    2. What size casserole?😂 Reminds me of the joke……. Oh cut my pizza in 6 pieces, I could never eat 12! People: just take the total amount of casserole and divide it in to either 8 portions or 6 portions for servings!

  3. It says:

    WEIGHT WATCHERS POINTS INFO

    4 Servings: 7 PointsPlus / 11 Smart Points
    6 Servings: 5 PointsPlus / 6 Smart Points

    1. You can just skip the sour cream or replace it with salsa maybe? I have the “eat it or starve” philosophy in my house so I can’t be sure.

  4. When I place ingredients into my recipe builder it states that it is 4 Free style points. How did you get the calculations of 1? I just want to make sure I am tracking the proper points. Thank you! By the way my family does love this recipe!

  5. I used ground turkey! Delicious! I made a second casserole with ground beef for my family and they used tortillas you make tacos.

  6. Tried the chicken taco casserole tonight my family loved it. They didn’t even know it was weight Watchers till about half way thru the meal. I’ll definitely make it again

  7. I made this last night for a friend on WW. But this recipe is so good, it has me looking for other WW recipes! It was fantastic!

  8. Delicious! I bake mine in a 9×13 pan and I cook 16 oz boneless, skinless chicken breasts and shred it. We like it better than the grd meat. I also add an extra can of beans & cut it into 8 servings.
