This tasty Mexican-flavored casserole calls for just six convenient ingredients, so it's a breeze to put together. To make it heartier, you can add a pound of browned ground beef. Or try a pizza variation using pizza sauce, pepperoni and mozzarella cheese. It's sure to be a hit with all ages. -Lanita Anderson, Jacksonville, North Carolina

"In response to punkinseed~The Mexican flavored casserole uses Monterey Jack cheese.

The Pizza variation uses Mozzarella cheese.
Different flavor cheeses for different ethnicities!"
