Affectionately coined "Debbie's Casserole" in our household. Named after a family friend from church named Debbie N. This was a staple in our house and didn't last very long. My father in particular loved this recipe.

This is great. add a little more tomato sauce(spicy) and sour cream. It tasted fantastic. Having a teenager this is a great casserole that fills him up

I've given this recipe 5 stars because it serves as a good base, but we did feel that it begged for something to spice it up a bit. Don't get me wrong - it's tasty as is, we just felt that it needed 'something' more. I will definitely make it again and will try adding some Ro-Tel, crushed red pepper flakes, or diced green chilis. Thank you for a nice recipe, HeathersArk!

Wasn't sure this was going to taste great, but turned out fabulous! I think it needs more sour cream and tomato sauce, but otherwise it tasted great and was very filling!
