I got this recipe from a Kraft Foods recipe and changed it just a hair for my family… we like more cheese than they called for and we love the 5-cheese mexi mix.
Guess what… this taco inspired casserole freezes very well. So, you could make a few of them and stash them away until your next busy evening!
