Notes

Recipe from pattilouwho from Tasty Kitchen! Photo by me! This dish was delicious! Yum-O! The modifications I made was to brown and drain the ground beef before adding the spices and while the ground beef was draining, I sauted the onions and then mixed everything in the skillet! I also added some salsa to the mixture as well as on the layers. I also added an extra layer since I had a little over a pound of ground beef!
