* A simple Mexican-style casserole with beef and cheese -- This a
conglomeration of several of my favorite Mexican casserole recipes. I
took what I liked best from each one and this is what it turned out
to be. My family devoured it instantly and completely, and it has
become one of our favorites. Yield: Serves 4-6.
* You can adjust the seasonings to suit your own tastes; I listed
conservative amounts (for me, anyway!). You can also add salsa
(homemade is best) to the casserole, if desired. Serve with fried
rice (plain or flavored) and green salad.
: Difficulty: easy.
: Time: 15 minutes preparation, 20 minutes cooking.
: Precision: approximate measurement OK.
