      I am bookmarking your wonderful recipe. My husband is a Texan and I lived there for 1o years. We both adore TexMex. It is so difficult to find restaurants that know how to prepare "proper" Mexican food out here in the West! ;) This casserole is the perfect solution. I love one-dish meals. Thanks for the recipe!
