    Dissie's Note:

    This is one of my go to recipes when I want to make something that is filling and comes together quickly! If you don't like spicy, watch it on the crushed red pepper. I usually turn it into a casserole and use the oven method, but you can make it in the skillet and be eating in no time! Cooking time is based on eating if directly from skillet and not putting in the oven to make it more of a casserole. This is one of my mothers passed down meals.

      You can simply eat this as is, or you can place in a lightly greased casserole dish and place in preheated 375 degree oven. If you put in oven, top with more cheddar cheese. Serve when cheese has melted and starts to brown and casserole is bubbly!
