As the year moves along we get closer and closer to the holiday season. I feel like that means I just get more and more busy! That also means that sometimes dinner time goes to a screeching halt. I need quick meals that many times are one dish meals or casseroles.

Thankfully, this past week I was introduced to Simply Potatoes and the wheels were churning to make these into a tasty Cheesy Potato Taco Casserole. My entire family loves a good taco style casserole, why not swap the pasta for potatoes?

This is almost like having a big stuffed baked potato, but instead you have diced potatoes. I decided to use the Simply Potatoes Steakhouse Diced Potatoes. These were the absolute perfect choice for this taco casserole.

I paired these with beef, onions, peppers, tomato sauce, and a few diced tomatoes with chilies to give this simple casserole a nice kick.

Simply Potatoes are located near the dairy sections and they are always fresh, not frozen. They are made with real ingredients, plus you do not have to peel because they are already peeled and ready to go! I hate peeling potatoes so that is a bonus!

We ended up eating these as leftovers the next day, you could even get another boost of protein and add a fried or poached egg on top. If you want to take these for a brunch or breakfast party, you could always swap the beef for a good ground sausage too. The possibilities are endless!

Are you ready for a taste of this delicious casserole? Time for dinner or brinner!
