"I made a dish called Sombrero casserole from Taste of Home many times for neighbors, church and my family. Haven't had it in a while and can't find my book. It was turned to this page and highlighted. As time passed I forgot about it and today started my search where it should have been. Its lost or gone. The above casserole is not what I made in the past, no corn was in it and you made your own cornbread topping. What are the chances it has been updated thru time? The one I made was called Sombrero bake. Any chances someone might have this recipe?"
"We skipped the green peppers and did not bake it with the picante sauce. It was really delicious and filling. We will be making this again."
"I have been making this receipe for a couple of years now. My family loves all the flavors combined. You can dress it up with other mexican favorites too! I do cut back on the cheese to help reduce some fat content."
