This is hands down my family's favorite dinner! I got the idea when I saw a recipe for a taco casserole. Being a pescetarian (vegetarian who eats seafood), I needed to take out the beef. I added chili beans and moved around the other ingredients until I got it just right! It is seriosuly SO yum and the easiest ever. Even if you're not vegetarian, you'll love it!

1. Here's what you'll need: taco shells (I used 10 "super stuffer" kind), 8oz salsa, a few stalks of green onion, 2 cans of chili beans (I used Bush's medium), 8 oz sour cream, 1/2 packet taco seasoning, and 1-2 cups of shredded cheese. You're thinking "I have most of these ingredients in my fridge right now!" right?!

2. First, heat both cans of beans and the salsa on the stove til it boils. Pour into a glass casserole dish.

3. Top with a handful or two of chopped green onions, and the shredded cheese on top of that. Just eye ball these two things, adding more or less to your preference. I like a lot of both! Pop in the over at 350.

 4. In the meantime, mix your 8oz sour cream with 1/2 packet taco seasoning.

5. After about 20 mins in the oven, your casserole will come out like this! When the cheese is bubbly, it's ready.

 6. Serve in taco shells (I usually heat those in the oven alongside the casserole dish when there's 5-6 mins left). Top with the sour cream mixture. ENJOY!

 Dada came home as I was making this dish; the boys were so excited!!

 They sure do love Dada :)

Make this for  dinner TONIGHT! I know I am!
