Mexican Casserole

My mother-in-law was an amazing cook. She had a treasure trove of recipes that I went through after she died and complied a list of family favorites. This Mexican Casserole is one that did not look appealing to me at all. But it is one of our family favorites.


Spicy and cheesy, with Fritos chips to give it a crutch and make it fun.

Did I mention that it comes together quickly too? I like to have all the ingredients in my food storage so I can whip this up whenever I’m running out of time to make dinner.


This dish is sure to be a crowd pleaser in your home to if you give it a shot. I promise your kids and husband will be coming back for seconds.
