My kids ask for this hearty slow-cook casserole for breakfast and dinner. I’ve served it with white country gravy or salsa. It’s delightful either way. —Cindy Pruitt, Grove, Oklahoma

"Absolutely a wonderful recipe. If you LOVE Mexican food - this is for you! So mouth watering in taste and texture. I added pepper jack cheese and added another cupful of cheese as we are cheese lovers. You can make this in a 9 x 13 baking pan instead of a crockpot, cover in foil for about 45 minutes at 350 degrees or until heated through. I made breakfast taco's with this using corn tortillas as the taste of corn shines through. This is a winner."
