    Heat oven to 350^.
  2. Add all remaining ingredients to the bowl and mix to blend. Do not drain the peas (or corn If you are using that-which I prefer) but use use what you have.Use the taco mix straight from the package.Don't add any salt as there is enough in all the other ingredients.

    Top with the onion rings and cheese.
    Bake for 45 minutes , until bubbly and cheese has melted.Remove from oven add 1/2 cup more cheese over top and let set for 5 minutes. Then Enjoy!
