I just love, love, love easy casserole recipes…you know, the ones that take a few minutes to prepare, but when they come out of the oven, they give you that warm, comfy feeling of home? Comfort food at its finest!
Unfortunately, many easy casserole recipes aren’t actually that tasty. I’ve tried many different recipes over the years and oftentimes, I am disappointed with the results. Either thrown together with overly salty canned soup, or just bland and flavorless, I’ve not had much luck in making a delicious casserole like my grandma used to make.
Luckily, I saw this recipe in a recent issue of Cook’s Country magazine and hit the jackpot! Full of flavor, with easy-to-find, whole-food ingredients, this casserole was a huge hit with my whole family!
To make it more kid-friendly, I adapted the ingredients a bit. The original recipe calls for Rotel tomatoes, but I found that even the mild version was way too spicy for my little ones (and for me too!).
Here’s how I put it together:
The leftovers are even better the next day! Serve with sour cream, a green salad, or my Easy Mexican Green Beans, which will be on the blog next week!
