I have a weakness for Mexican food, so when I tasted this, I had to have the recipe! It's a fun alternative to the more traditional fare. The cayenne gives it a great kick!

This casserole was a hit. Krissi and I are kind of the faint of stomach as far as heat goes. so we kind of questioned the cayenne AND the chili powder. But the men in the house loved it. If you are among the faint of stomach like us, you can certainly reduce the amount of heat. It would still be delicious. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
