Mexican Casserole

A full flavored Mexican casserole that will not leave you feeling hungry and the leftovers are great for freezing and eating later. The jalapeños really give this meal a nice kick so if you don’t like hot stuff just leave them out. Alternatively add another packet of taco seasoning if you like your food that little bit spicier. Serve with chopped green onions or lettuce and plenty of sour cream.
