I just made this tonight. Everyone loved it.  I will definitely be adding this to my rotation.

We have plenty for left-overs tomorrow which means that I won’t have to cook. Extra brownie points for me!! I love it for making my life easier.

We love this recipe. You can make it different & use rotisserie chicken in place of the ground beef. 

I doubled the recipe and ended up with two 9×13 pans of this amazing recipe!
