This is my dad's aunt Dema's recipe. (She's the same aunt who made the King Ranch Chicken recipe posted here on Just a Pinch.) I've made it a few times and always get rave reviews. It's easy to make, especially if you chop the onion and bell pepper ahead of time.

I use Roma (plum) tomatoes because they're just the right diameter to fit nicely on the crust.

This casserole is mild-flavored and seems to go well with a crisp green salad. I sometimes serve this with tortilla chips and seasoned pinto beans.
