Meal-In-One Casserole

Salsa gives zip to this hearty fix-and-forget-it meal from Dorothy Pritchett of Wills Point, Texas. "This recipe makes more than my husband and I can eat, so I freeze half of it. We think it tastes even better the second time," she adds.

    We did not care for this at all. It was easy to prepare though.
