Fantastic, freezes well and lends itself to easy adaptations with different spices.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 2, 2012

This was great! I made a couple of changes as well. Instead of cayenne pepper, I used pepper jack cheese. We don't like frozen beans so I used 1 can whole kernal corn, 1 cream style and a large can of mushrooms. Yum! Thank you for a really good new favorite.

The family loved this. I used cream of mushroom soup because that is what I had on hand. Also halved the recipe just to make 1 casserole.
