Taco Stroganoff is a spin on our popular Hamburger Stroganoff recipe! This is the perfect quick and easy meal for your family on busy nights. It has a ton of flavor from the seasoned taco meat and corn. Plus, it’s extra creamy from the secret ingredient, cream cheese! It’s served over traditional egg noodles.
The BEST Taco Stroganoff!
It’s that time of year again! Back-to-school and back to a regular routine. Are you guys ready? With the weather already changing here I’m getting in a fall mood and I’m excited to do “real” cooking again! You know, recipes that are comforting and cozy and great for busy weeknights now that the kiddos are back in school. This Taco Stroganoff is a new favorite and it’s perfect for this time of year.
My mind is on all things fall! Now I want pumpkin and apple treats and cozy dinners. Remember my Hamburger Stroganoff recipe? Its definitely a reader favorite, so I decided to mix it up a bit and make this Mexican-inspired Taco Stroganoff version! I’m pleased to say if you are looking for a little zip to your stroganoff this one won’t disappoint! It comes together quick and easy (a must in my life!) and it will spice up your regular old rotation at supper! If you like twists on tacos you need to check out my Taco Casserole, too!
Instead of beef simmered in a rich mushroom gravy, this Taco Stroganoff is a creamy and hearty noodle dish with seasoned beef and lots of cheese. It’s a fun way to switch up regular beef stroganoff (and perfect for taco Tuesday!) and will satisfy everyone’s appetites.

What is the difference between goulash and stroganoff?
Traditional goulash is more of a stew that is made with beef and vegetables and is flavored with paprika. A traditional stroganoff is also made with beef, but it’s simmered in a rich sauce made with mushrooms and it has sour cream in it to make it creamy.
Obviously, I took some liberties with this Taco Stroganoff! It’s different, but cooked and served in a way that’s very similar to stroganoff! I like to use ground beef because it cooks fast (and it’s hard to mess up!).
What substitutions can I make for this recipe?
You can substitute ground turkey or even ground chicken for the beef in this recipe. For the cheese, you definitely want to use cream cheese but you could switch out the cheddar cheese for pepper jack cheese to switch up the flavors.
You could also switch out the noodles and serve this dish with rice!
How to store Taco Stroganoff: If you have leftovers, they will keep well for three to four days in the refrigerator. I like to portion them out into small containers so they’re easy to reheat for lunches! If you’re not going to use up the leftovers in that time frame, you can freeze them. Just be sure to store them in an airtight container and they should keep well frozen for up to two months.
How to reheat: The easiest way to reheat your leftovers in the microwave. Just vent the container and cook them until they are warmed through. You can also reheat them on the stovetop in a pan, but you may need to add a splash of milk or water to thin the sauce.
