Sour Cream and Ground Beef Layered Casserole

This is a great casserole that I have been making for years, it's one of my family's favorite dishes. Feel free to adjust all ingredient amounts to suit taste. I usually season the ground beef/onion mixture with seasoned salt and add in some cayenne pepper for heat but that is optional.

This was AMAZING. The only thing I did different was I added a 15oz can of Italian style diced tomatoes. Definitely adding to our casserole rotation!

I was in a hurry to get any 'fast' recipe, using the contents of my pantry. After we ate the resulted casserole I should have known it was Kittencal! All of your stuff is so, so good! Just because I didn't read the recipe closely on the assembly... I combined all of the ingredients/stirred it up and poured it into the baking dish, baked 30min. It was DELICIOUS!

I usually love all of kittens recipes. Just not this one. Everyone ate it but doesn't want it made again. It wasn't bad just wasn't very appealing. Sorry first time I have ever gave a 3 star.
