    PanNan's Note:

    An easy and family pleasing casserole that's on the table in less than 45 minutes. I serve this with a guacamole salad, or a green salad with slices of avocado.

      i have made this recipe twice and we just love it for a quick dinner when everyone is on a different schedule, the flavors get stronger as it sits. i made it as written the first time, and used chili i had made the second time, both times it was great, this is easily adaptable and delicious family fare

      My family and especially the kids loved your casserole. It was easy to prepare so I was happy. I added a couple a chopped garlic cloves to the meat mixture and used 1/2 of a jalapeno--because of the kids. Made a nice family meal. Thanks Pan Nan.

      Very easy for a weeknight dinner! I used 2tsp of Aussie chili powder for a nice spicy dish. Served with a salad and sour cream, thanks for posting!
