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. How many does this serve and how much on WW can we have? Doesn’t tell us. Thank you

    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.

  2. It does say on original post
    8 servings 8sp per servng

    1. Hey there! :) Saute meat and beans together, as shown in the photo above.

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

  4. 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!

          1. Wondering the same – do you drain the cans of corn and beans?

  5. It says:


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

  6. Thank you for including the freestyle points value! I will definitely try this!

  7. This was fantastic and easy! Thank you so much for sharing!

  8. Can you taste the sour cream? Silly I know but I’m dealing with a picky eater. TIA

    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.

  9. 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!

    1. Recipe builder shows 1 for me. Did you do the right serving amounts?

  10. Can this be frozen before the baking stage to cook at a later time?

  11. Can you use the plain Greek yogurt that’s zero points, in place of the sour cream?

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

  13. 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

  14. No good deed goes unpunished! Lol! Thank you for the recipe!

  15. 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!

  16. Where do you find taco sauce in the grocery store and what brand did you use?

  17. 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.

  18. I can’t wait to try this recipe tonight!
