Recipe by Janet

One casserole serves about 4 (of course, we like to eat!). Can't remember where the recipe came from, but it's really easy to make and makes a great "quick" meal when you freeze one of them.

We all felt like this dish was missing something. I think next time that I will up the chili powder to 2 Tablespoons instead of teaspoons and might try garlic or oregano to help lift it. This dish has definite possibilities though.
