“Your family will be clammering for more when you serve this casserole, it is simply delicious, don't expect any leftovers lol! We like extreme heat so I most always add in two large chopped jalapeno peppers in with the ground beef mixture. You can use grated mozzeralla cheese in place of Monterey Jack for the top or you omit the cheese completely and just top with Parmesan. Make certain to hand-squeeze out any excess moisture from the spinach, or the sour cream will become to runny.”
