    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    This is easy and very tasty, it's good served hot or at room temperature for a side dish, or as a main meal. All ingredients can be adjusted to taste. Add in finely chopped jalapeno pepper or crushed chili peppper for some heat.

      Kittencal, I had to change this recipe and don't like to make major changes to your recipes, however I did not have chili sauce so I used some of your enchilada sauce Kittencal's Red Enchilada or Taco Sauce I had made for another recipe and frozen. Otherwise I followed the recipe and added the fresh cilantro and green onions on the top of the casserole. My BF loved it! It turned out great. Thank you and next time will make sure I have chili sauce.

      This tasted just like a recipe I lost after years and years (my Mom's).
      ...tho' the brown sugar and chili sauce were different. Loved it all!
      Thanks. I always served cornbread and a green vegetable or salad.
      (Kids used to love mine--now all grown up.) A winner. Thanks. Gramma BB
