“My mom used to make this for us growing up--my dad wasn't a big fan of Mexican food and wouldn't touch anything remotely spicy. This has a very mild flavor--though I like to kick it up with some pepperjack cheese and salsa on top. You can also use tortilla chips on the bottom if you have them on hand.I often substitute minced onion to taste if I don't have fresh onion on hand.”

Ingredients Nutrition
