this is a crowd pleaser that is easy to make a lot or a little. It is like a Mexican lasagna and is fast, easy and kid approved! Kids also love to help assemble the casserole! Don't be afraid to make it your own by using ground chicken or ground turkey, it still will be super good, Also I never add salt to a recipe with shredded cheese because it is too salty for me, but if you are a salt lover feel free to add to taste
