READY IN: 26hrs
Recipe by carolinafan

Not a real stomach-stinger, but hot enough. Prep time includes refrigeration time.

This turned out very well for us. I made it the night before, put in the frig, then popped in the oven and dinner was ready with no problem. The casserole was very well seasoned but like you said, did not burn us up. The layered ingredients was very interesting and my family gave it their approval. Thanks Anita.
