This Beefy Mexican Casserole came to me by way of my awesome sister-in-law. She made this for the boys when I was out visiting Minnesota, and they loved it!

Any dish that all four of them eat, I am such a fan of because that’s like finding a unicorn. In true boy fashion, it wasn’t as big of a hit the second time around, but its still going right into my rotation. It is a super simple, quick, delicious weeknight meal that you can throw together in under an hour. Love.

A small note though…the original recipe called for fat-free sour cream, which I don’t ever buy. I used the real stuff, which curdled after I baked it. It tasted great still, but next time I make this I’m going to omit it.

I’m also omitting it from the recipe I’m posting here. My sister-in-law said she had no issue with curdling either time that she’s made it, so your milage may vary. Also, she says that putting some cubed cream cheese in makes it extra delicious!

The website is frustrating. Too much unrelated information and ads.

Sorry you had that experience. I run the least intrusive ad setup possible that'll still cover the costs of running this website. That allows me to provide *free* content for you. But, it isn't everyone's cup of tea. If you prefer an ad-free experience, I recommend using one of the many recipe subscription services available for your needs. And stop complaining about free content. ;) We all pay somehow for this stuff, whether by shelling out actual $$ or by being exposed to advertising, nothing is truly *free*.

Cannot view directions anywhere. All I can view is a bunch of ads and blogs. Pretty frustrating when I bought all the ingredients and now I have no directions. Will not use this site again.
