By nature casseroles are usually a pretty easy meal to pull off — it's part of the reason we love them so much — but these 10 casseroles stand out from the crowd, big time. Some come together with just a handful of pantry ingredients, some require no upfront prep, and a few do all the heavy lifting for you. In addition to the warming comfort they always promise to deliver, this family-friendly lineup features the easiest casseroles we know how to make.

1. Ground Beef Taco Casserole

This casserole tastes just like the classic ground beef tacos you grew up with. Serve it as is, or use it as a topping for tacos salad or a bunch of tortilla chips, or stuff it inside a soft tortilla and roll it up.

7. Chicken and Biscuit Casserole

This casserole is topped with one-bowl cream biscuits. I love these biscuits for how simple they are to pull together, but you can make dinner even easier by swapping them out for a tube of store-bought buttermilk biscuits.
