Family really enjoyed this. We made it twice. Once exactly to the recipe and another time with some changes. I found the original to be a bit too soggy for us.

This was so yummy the first time I made it just like the recipe stated. This time I’m using leftover roast beef instead of the ground beef.

I’m sure it will be just as delicious!

Macaroni & Cheese Ham Casserole

I honestly had low expectations for this dish- only picked it because I had all on hand. But it was pretty good.

My husband and father in law loved it so much they went back for second helpings and were excited to have it for lunch the next day.

This recipe is a little bit of work but you get great authentic restaurant-quality taquitos. So much better than the ones you can buy frozen. I’ve made this twice now and do not stray at all from the recipe. It’s perfect as written.
