    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    Since there is no precooking the ground beef for this casserole it comes together quite easy, just layer ingredients and bake in just one dish, I always season the ground beef with seasoned salt, black pepper, fresh garlic and a few tablespoons of Parmesan cheese but that is only optional, you can even sprinkle cheddar cheese in the middle also when layering :)

      this was totally awesome and so easy to throw together! i made a few changes to fit what i had and to play into the mexican theme a little more. i used a sleeve of the yellow saffron rice, black beans instead of the corn, a can of pace enchilada sauce instead of the tomato sauce, i added a serrano pepper and some garlic to the onion pepper mixture, i added a layer of cheese in the middle, i seasoned the ground beef with a taco seasoning packet, i used a can of extra hot rotel for the tomatoes, and i partially cooked the bacon and cut it up before adding to casserole. everyone enjoyed this! it was full of flavor and pretty too! i'll be making this several times a month. served with mexican corn muffins. thanks for another winner, carol!!!!

      This is a very versatile recipe, your could change it to fit your taste in many ways, as long as you keep the liquid ratio correct. I made a mexican casserole out of it, next time I'll try the regular recipe. I stirred about 1-2 T of my homemade cilantro pesto into the rice (it was a nice addition) and would put basil pesto for the regular recipe as well as some mushrooms over the meat layer. The timing was right, but a 450 degree temperature is too hot for my oven, it burnt and stuck a little in the corners, so I think 425 would work better for me, perhaps increasing the cooking time a bit. It was an easy recipe since nothing needs pre-cooking, you just need to plan plenty of cooking time. This is a keeper!

      I used canned chicken as someone else suggested and my hubby and son looooved it! Easy to put together and very filling. I also seasoned with chili powder and garlic. Used a can of rotel tomatos too. I think it would have been better with the salsa instead of the tomato sauce. Thanks for the recipe!
