When my children were young, we had a mexican fiesta night. I came up with this casserole and the whole family absolutely loved it. It has also been a hit at many church and other potluck dinners. It can easily be tweeked to suit your family's tastes. You can also increase the amount of cheese, if you like. Hope y'all enjoy!
