Deep Dish Nacho Casserole
Serves 4
A cross between Nacho's and a "Mexican" Lasagna, this recipe has all the favorite "South of the Border" flavors in one layered dish. Another bonus is that you can prepare this dish ahead of time, then re-heat and serve when company comes. Topped with fresh salsa, sour cream or enchilada sauce it's sure to be a favorite for Mexican food lovers.
