If you like foods with Southwestern flair, this just might become a new favorite. Loaded with cheese, meat and beans, the layered casserole comes together in a snap. There are never any leftovers when I take this dish to potlucks. —Terri Keena, Tuscaloosa, Alabama

"This was great! I didn't have green peppers, so I omitted them, but it was still great. Pretty simple to make too."

MY REVIEW

"I have been making this recipe for several years for my family and potlucks at work. I make it just like it's written except I increase the beef to 1 1/2 or 2 lbs depending on where it's being eaten. Perfect every time. Definitely one of my "go-to" recipes."
