This is a great crowd pleaser. It keeps well, leftovers are great the next day. Very forgiving to substitutions, exclusions, and additions with regard to the spices. Kids like it better without the chili powder and a mild salsa. From "All Time Family Favorites, Casseroles & One-Dish Meals."

My dad and I made this recipe out of the Pace recipe book when I was a kid. Can't believe I found it again - loved it!
Wow, this was tasty. I made it last weekend and even froze some portions. Very delicious!
