Mucho good!! This casserole has a very pretty presentation (if topped as directed) and is as good to eat as it is to look at. Serve with Mexican rice, salsa and frozen margaritas and you will make a hit with family and friends!

Really simple to make and very tasty. My kids all loved it, and so did my husband.

This was great - tasty and pretty easy. I made a "half" batch since it was for just two of us, but I think we might well have used even more leftovers. I did not make the "presentation" version with the cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, olives, etc. dcorating the top. Just sprinkled diced onions and grated cheddar on top and browned. I would have included black olives if I'd had them on hand.
