Rio Grande Casserole (or Dip)

Ready in 45 minutes

Ok, ok - this isn't the original name. I don't even know if Mom knew that the name was even offensive. This name is the one that Don gave it - since when I took it places as a dish I could hardly use the original one.

"So delicious, I also added taco seasoning to the meat. I must say, I'm quite curios as to the original name of this dish. Whatever its called its tasty! :)"

Servings  

Preparation

Notes

Instead of baking, you can microwave this dish, but I don't think that it tastes quite as good. The original name had the word "soup" in it - mainly because it can be a bit runny from the vegetable juices that come out during the baking process.

I usually serve this as a main dish, but it can be used as an appetizer (hot dip) as well at parties. The nice thing is that this can be made ahead of time and put in the fridge before throwing it in the oven.

Like other recipes, you could add other topping ingredients (like olives) if you like. You can also adjust the amount of each topping to suit your own taste.

Could use some spices on the meat, kinda bland.
