Great Tex Mex casserole! I didn't want to go to the store, so I used Recipe #345502 and made the enchilada sauce from Recipe #58503 (neat recipe since it basically uses water and spices). My husband and I LOVED this dish and I will be sure to make it often. Recipe #212572 was a great topping for it. Thanks ffjeff for a great recipe and being a firefighter! Roxygirl
