Easy to Adapt Mexican Casserole

Easy Mexican Casserole has been a family favorite at our house for years. This recipe is hearty, filling and full of great ingredients! Adding a salad to this makes a full meal. Did I mention this is EASY to make?

Easy Mexican Casserole
One way I can save some time is to put this easy Mexican casserole together in the morning before I head out to work. Then when I get home I can just throw it in the oven and bake. Dinner will be on the table in no time!

Easy to Adapt too!
One thing I love about this recipe is that it is really easy to adapt for picky eaters. If your family doesn’t like beans you could leave those out and add more beef. Simple!

I will warn you that flour tortillas do NOT work good in this recipe. I have tried it….and they get too soggy. Yuck.
