    A great Mexican casserole that I've been making for fifteen plus years--a real family favorite of ours! Originally from a local church cookbook where everyone puts their best recipes!

      Very simple to make dish much like a Mexican lasagna! Like Denise, I only went with half the cheese and found that it was it was enough. I increased the spices in the dish, and to heat the dish, I let each person serve their person with jalapenos, because the flavor of those seemed to go best (habaneros didn't have the right flavor). Thanks for the recipe, this one is a keeper!

      I made this for dinner the other night and it was absolutely delicious and so easy to make. I did add a little more chili powder. I only had one lb. of Monterey Jack cheese and it still turned out good. I didn't spread the sour cream over the top and just let everyone put on the amount they wanted. Thanks for a great recipe Leslie...will be making again for sure.
