My family loves this dish, but when you work full time you need to take shortcuts. My DH thought something was missing in the flavor so I added fresh chopped cilantro to give it a kick. Also I use olive oil to cook onions and green pepper to get rid of the trans fats in margarine. I also doubled the Ro*Tel giving casserole a richer consistency. Really great served with a cold salad.
