      THANK YOU this is the REAL version of the casserole. My grandma used to make this was a family favorite. She wrote it on a recipe card I still have it....somewhere. I looked online and there are all these beef taco versions? I knew it was like a chili relleno with no meat with evaporated milk and 2 pounds of cheese. I always add more tomato.

      I found this recipe in A Taste of Georgia Southern Living Hall of Fame. The recipe is supposed to be an adaptation of the original recipe of actor John Wayne. This is really delicious, and very satisfying. Thank you for posting!
