Make this crowd-pleasing nacho cheese casserole. It’s packed full of taco flavor and topped with delicious nacho cheese! It’s such an easy and kid-friendly recipe.
My kids love that they can customize it to their liking. My son likes it topped with sour cream and my girls love it with tomatoes and olives. I like my nacho cheese casserole topped with a little bit of salsa. Yum.
Freezer Friendly Nacho Cheese Casserole
I’ve been making this recipe for my family for several years now. I love making a double batch and throwing one in the freezer, so I’ve included freezer meal directions in the recipe as well. You can also read our post on how to freeze casseroles for additional tips.
If you have been around for long, you probably know that I love freezer cooking. I have a whole extra freezer I like to stock in preparation for busy seasons (like welcoming a new baby) or whenever I get the freezer cooking itch. Here is a great list of other casseroles that freeze well (with shopping list).
It’s All About the Nacho Cheese
The cheese I use in this nacho cheese casserole is Ricos Gourmet Nacho. It is so good! It seriously takes taco night to a whole new level. I love that I can stock up on a few cans whenever I find myself at Walmart and keep them on hand whenever I have a craving for some really good nacho anything.
If you like things extra spicy, you can switch out the gourmet nacho flavor for Ricos Hot & Spicy Cheddar. I stick with the regular nacho flavor for our dinners, because I have little kids. If you make it with the spicy variety I can totally live vicariously through you! 😉
They also sell giant 6 pound, 10-ounce cans of their cheese sauce. Those are really good for throwing in your crockpot for an easy party dip (all you need to do is heat and eat).
