    kcdelong's Note:

    Prepare ahead casserole that is always a hit. Just enough spice to get that Southwest 'flavor'. Man, this is what makes a great Tex-Mex meal. Need to refrigerate overnight.

      Excellent casserole. I made it in the morning, too and let it refrigerate all day. Stuck it in the oven and getting dinner ready was no big deal. This casserole has lively Tex-Mex flavor that we all enjoyed. Very cheesy too, which is always important to me. Worth doing again. Thanks kcdelong.

      Loved this casserole! I made it early in the morning and refrigerated it all day and just popped it in the oven for an instant supper. It was really delicious! I put jalapenos on top and I think next time I make it I may saute some corn in the beef mixture. I'd recommend this to anyone!

      I made this last week just as written and it was wonderful. My twins called this morning and said they were bringing home friends for dinner and wanted this casserole again. I have no car and no tortillas but did have a bag of Fritos soooooooo. Worked just fine and had to print out the recipe and send it home with a couple of the boys. Thanks for a kid friendly master piece. Went into the "Keeper" file.......Lydia
