Tex-Mex Casserole

Rain rain go away come again another day month.  Last year we were in an extreme  drought and this summer it keeps raining and breaking records.  It’s rained for one week straight and the forecast is expecting even more rain for the next week.  I can’t take it anymore and  I need some sun to turn this blahhh mood around.

Because it’s a lazy feeling week I decided to make a casserole.  I had made a firecracker casserole about a year ago and I wanted to change some things up in the recipe and this is what I came up with.  I wish I would have doubled up the recipe because I sure wouldn’t mind having a frozen one just waiting to be reheated and devoured.  Shaun, my mom and I each cleaned our plate.  Yay for leftovers!
