Recipe Notes

There are several ways to adapt this recipe for taste or for what you have on hand. I have used both cream of chicken and cream of mushroom soup in this recipe. I think it tastes great both ways! I will sometimes add an extra can of beans or Ro-tel to bring even more nutrition to the dish. You can add more heat to the casserole by using Hot Ro-tel or adding some cayenne pepper to the meat mixture. I have also used fajita seasoning when I was out of taco seasoning! The only thing that I would NOT recommend is using flour tortillas....I tried it and they were too mushy.
