If you like Mexican, you’ll love this! Serve with a tossed salad (on Holly Hobby place mats of course – oh brother, I can’t believe I still use those!)

*This recipe is from my very beat-up Pillsbury Kitchens’ Family Cookbook
**Or brown the meat in an oven-proof skillet, spoon the topping over the hot beef mixture and bake right in the skillet thus saving another dish.
