This is delicious! It's an odd little recipe that I found when hunting for a tamale style casserole. (It misses on that score). I didn't use 1/2 cup of oil. I used just enough to saute the onions. I baked this in a 10" Corning Ware casserole dish. I tossed some shredded longhorn cheese on top about 10 minutes before it was done. Served it in squares with a dollop of sour cream on the side. I used sliced Spanish olives with pimento. It added some zip that my husband loved. I'll be making this one again. I think this would also be good with left over shredded beef or pork. It's a perfect "pot-luck" dish. Thanks for this little diamond in the rough. Easy to put together, great comfort food with a little Southwestern flair.
