    This is one of my most shared recipes! Everyone loves this one, even my Sister-in-law who does not like ground meat. Leftovers are great too. A comfort food for your whole family or next party. Can be made ahead.

      Remove from oven; sprinkle with cheese& let sit for 10 minutes before serving.

      I agree that this went together very quickly and made up a beautiful presentation...I made exactly as directed, but next time I will add a little extra heat to it by adding a few red pepper flakes. Great recipe. Thanks for posting!!!

      This was very good!! It was very easy to make and went together quickly. I liked the fact that it could be made ahead to save time. We like our Mexican dishes a little spicy, so next time I think I would season it up to add some heat. Thank you for sharing this is a keeper!!
