Not sure where I got this recipe, but it's a real favorite with my grandkids. I usually make it earlier in the day and then pop it into the oven when ready for dinner.

Absolutely delicious! I like spicy, so I added a diced chipotle chile and a couple tablespoons of adobo sauce. VERY good! I also made the cheese as my top layer..just a personal preference. Will definitely make this again!
