NOTES: * A simple Mexican-style casserole with beef and cheese -- This a conglomeration of several of my favorite Mexican casserole recipes. I took what I liked best from each one and this is what it turned out to be. My family devoured it instantly and completely, and it has become one of our favorites. Yield: Serves 4-6. * You can adjust the seasonings to suit your own tastes; I listed conservative amounts (for me, anyway!). You can also add salsa (homemade is best) to the casserole, if desired. Serve with fried rice (plain or flavored) and green salad.
