TJ's Mexican Casserole

Leanne Macias


A co-worker made this last year for one of our potluck's (2014). She said it 's a family favorite. Well she must be right because she got so many requests for her recipe! I saw that there were so many recipes on here already w/this similar name but this one is actually just different enough, I thought I would go ahead & post it.
