Dairy Free Taco Casserole

Dairy Free Taco Casserole

I found a recipe similar to this one in one of those mini cookbooks you can find at the grocery store checkout line. So help me I used to have a real problem with those little cookbooks. For a long time, I could not go through the checkout without purchasing one of those books and bringing them home. The drawbacks being 1) typically the recipes are not very healthy, and 2) the little books are quite expensive for what you are getting. I have since learned to curb that habit. Here is my take to make a dairy free taco casserole. The best part for me is this recipe utilized my own homemade taco seasoning.
