This Cinco de Mayo recipe is another, Mexican inspired, family favorite!  But, better than that, Mexican Casserole is a super quick, kid-friendly recipe for busy moms!  Add in some sausage or ground beef and it has all the ingredients necessary for a full course meal that is done is less than 30 minutes!  How’s that for easy?

I have lots of fun Cinco de Mayo happenings on my three sites including:
