Mixed reviews at our house. I liked it, but 3 year old didn't (shocking! ;) ) and DH ate some but didn't eat any leftovers, but he's not a casserole person. I made a half recipe and used 1/2 can pureed rotel in place of the tomato sauce and used the taco sauce. I probably used extra cheese as I didn't measure (and love cheese) and used up the rest of our pepper jack. It had a nice bite made like this and I think leftovers are tasty as well!
