Tasty, hearty, and includes all the “feels,” this casserole hits the spot if you are craving something Mexican. I call for canned chili beans here, but if you cannot source it, use any beans and add a generous pinch of chili flakes to the mix (or leave it out altogether if you are cooking for the kids). This is delicious as is and needs nothing more than maybe a green salad on the side if you want something ‘fresh’ to cut through the rich heartiness.
