This was really easy and pretty tasty. It just did not have quite enough spice for our tastes (even though I was heavy handed with the spices and used the green chilies) and was slightly on the bland side. Topping the slice with fresh cilantro, and salsa helped greatly and I was unfortunately out of olives which would have been a great addition as well! I also would have liked more of the egg mixture and less of the beef (we used ground turkey) mixture. Having said that, this is such a great, easy casserole dish that uses items I always have on hand. The ingredients compliment each other well. Next time I will add at least 2 more eggs and cut the meat down to about 3/4 of a pound or so, I will definitely double the spices as well. I know that with those few slight changes this will be a regular in our house. Thanks!
