This was so easy and really tasty! The only thing I'll do differently next time is increasing the amounts on the spices and adding them to the meat while it's cooking with the onion instead of with the other ingredients. I used two lbs of beef and a little extra on the other ingredients as well (12oz salsa a bag of frozen corn) and it made an enormous casserole - I used a 4.8 quart dish and it was probably enough for 6-8 people.

I made it just like the recipe said to and it turned out great. I doubled everything. For a large family outing! I cooled it and served it the next day reheated and everyone loved it! This is a fail safe simple recipe that most will enjoy. Read More
