This is not too hot and not to bland. You can adjust the amount of heat by the pepper spices you use. I love to fix this for family get togethers.

We enjoyed this casserole very much. Prepared exactly as written, adding lettuce, tomato, shredded cheese, onion, lite sour cream, and crushed nacho chips as garnish. My son commented that it was similar to taco pizza, with a little twist. For me, the spice was just right but might have been a tad too spicy for my 7 year old. Thank you for the recipe!
