RECIPE BACKSTORY
This casserole is similar to the last tater tot dish I made, but it has a little Mexican flare! It comes from the Taste Of Home Recipe Card Collection (Spring, 2009 Issue), and was submitted by Ronna Lewis of Plains, Kansas. I'm sorry to say that I don't have a picture this time; the batteries in my camera are dead. =(
