This is a very rich and fairly easy recipe to make. It can be heated up to your taste. We like a lot of heat in our food. You can scale the heat down to your own liking. This would be a great dish to take to pot-lucks. I found this recipe in Taste of Home's Casserole Cookbook and made changes for our liking. Served with spanish rice and a green salad this makes a great dinner. This dish can be made ahead, add additional bake time after refidgerated.
