potato olè bravo casserole

Recipe by

I came up with this idea from a Taco place we just love to eat at. With the cost of living on the rise I wanted to have this delicious treat but didn't want to spend all that money, SO, I improvised and made just one attempt to making this small fast food meal into a now :Family Favorite". This dish tastes exactly like the potato Olè bravos from Taco Johns at nearly half the cost for one person at the fast food restaurant. I can guarantee your family will love this too!
