I got this recipe from a friend who got it from a Betty Crocker cookbook. A very quick and easy mexican casserole. Great reheated as well.

This was a waste of time and ingredients. I just made this for dinner, and when you add the pasta, there is almost no sauce and no flavor. I tried dumping in a bunch of extra ingredients to liven it up and make it saucier, but it is still a waste of time. Maybe some of the amounts in the recipe are incorrect???
