Taco Bake

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Linda

this casserole is easily adaptable -- use Mexican Blend cheese instead of cheddar, or chopped jalapenos for lots of heat. We prefer it made with the mild chilies. Really good for a church potluck -- I always leave with an empty dish.

Very good. My hubby liked the cheese. I used a little ketchup in addition to the tomato sauce and I used left over taco meat. It was very filling, but not spectacular.
