From Marissa Undercofler of Howard, Pennsylvania, this dish uses three different applications of tomatoes. And it's a hearty way to warm up, and fill up, this winter!

Good recipe to play with and a good recipe to take to potlucks as it makes a huge casserole. To spice it up, I used a verde sauce. Will be making it again and will be adding more to it.

Awesome recipe! I used hot rotel, and tomato sauce, bulk taco seasoning (so I can add to taste). Used boxed Mac n cheese, and added some cheddar, topped with sour cream. Big hit with the family.

Like some of the other reviewers, I thought this needed a bit more Mexican flavor so I added some chili powder and cumin on top of the seasoning mix... Some other good additions would be corn, black olives, scallions/green onions.... Maybe even pepper jack cheese instead of cheddar... It's a good recipe to play with...
