How to Make Taco Pierogi Casseorle

This Mexican casserole is super easy to make. Start with browning some ground beef. Add taco seasoning and simmer a few minutes. Add cream of chicken soup, salsa, and Velveeta cheese and cook until it is melted. Remove from the heat and stir in the pierogies. Transfer mixture to a baking dish, top with cheese, and bake.

  • What are pierogies? Pierogies are basically potato ravioli. You can find them in the freezer section at the grocery store near the other frozen potatoes.
  • Can pierogi casserole be made in advance? Yes! You can assemble the casserole ahead of time and refrigerate it until ready to bake. You may need to add a few minutes to the cooking time if baking straight from the refrigerator.
  • Can pierogi casserole be frozen? Yes! You can assemble the casserole ahead of time and freeze unbaked for later. To bake the casserole after freezing, thaw completely and bake as directed below.
  • You can substitute ground turkey for ground beef.
  • There is no need to thaw the pierogies before adding them to the casserole. They will cook along with the rest of the casserole.
  • I used store-bought salsa. My favorite brands are Mateo’s and Kylito’s Salsa. I buy both at Walmart.
  • You can use an equivalent amount of homemade salsa for the jar of salsa in this recipe. Here is our favorite salsa recipe: https://www.plainchicken.com/superior-grill-salsa/
  • If you are serving this to little ones and are worried about the heat, make sure to use a mild salsa. You could also swap out the salsa for some crushed tomatoes and a little onion.

  1. It tastes good. Next time I am going to fry the Pierogis first with onions. We found the pierogies to taste a little doughy

  2. I made this but converted it to vegetarian by using veggie ground round. I also sautéed in onions, garlic, and a bunch of peppers. It was super good thanks for the recipe!!!!
