Tex-Mex Casserole!

I’m sure you can tell, I’m not a professional chef, or a foodie blogger. It’s probably obvious just from the finished recipe pictures. I’m a tried, and family tested, cook though. Some work out great. Some not so great.

This one is one of the successes. It is now part, of the regular rotation. It’s also awesome, because you can tweak it to your level of spicy, and easily make it keto friendly! I know you all just want to move on, to the actual recipe, so this where my rambling stops and the recipe starts!
