Mexican casserole

standard Mexican Casserole

This dish can actually do double duty. It can be a meal, or it can be used for parties as a dip for tortilla chips. I actually make it as both! When my hubby and I eat this as a meal, we dip our tortilla chips that way and use them as a spoon. You can also make this as hot as you want, or not at all.
