Mexican Casserole

mexican casserole recipe @astepinthejourney

 Mexican casserole. DELICIOUS! Have you ever tried it before. There are so many different varieties of this recipe out there, but this one is for the recipe books friends. One of III’s favorite dinner’s from childhood is Mexican casserole, so when I whipped this dish up, he was taken back. The best part about this dish is you are free to add any other veggies or change the chicken to beef & still get a fabulous result! This is a small variation on his mom’s!
