Because Cindo de Mayo is just around the corner and I realize how busy every one is… I thought I’d bring an oldie back with new photographs. Because this recipe is soooo amazing and I realize the original photographs did not do this recipe justice.
This casserole is a cinch to throw together… top it with your favorite Mexican toppings to customize it to your liking! I’ve eaten it with sliced black olives, sour cream, shredded lettuce… the sky is the limit!
Below is my original photograph from 2012. Please don’t judge.
It was as totally awesome back then as it is now, I just had a lot of learning to do as far as photography.
Enjoy and Happy Cinco de Mayo!
