• Layered Mexican Casserole

    MEXICAN CASSEROLEI had to spice up the original version of this recipe to make it work for our Texas tastebuds. You can always use the mild enchalada sauce and chilies if you want less heat to your casserole.

    My meat is a little "chunkier" than yours will be. I cooked it the night before and used it cold in casserole.
