This features mild South-of-the Borders flavors. Since Chorizo sausage is not available in all areas, I control the heat in this casserole by choosing either hot or mild sausage. There is not much chili powder and green chilies are mild. For the more adventurous It is easy to increase the amount of heat, to taste.
