Lusog Notes

This Taco Casserole recipe is rich in calcium and iron. Calcium is necessary for strong bones and teeth while iron aids in the formation of red blood cells that carry oxygen all over the body.

Chef's Tip

For better texture, lightly toast the taco shells in a toaster oven before layering so that they are drier and crispier.
