Pantry Raid: Tex-Mex Casserole

0

It was a snowy week here in the Northeast and I’m not a cold weather-loving person. Looking at the snowfall is all well and good, but I prefer to stay inside and do that. It’s not that I’m necessarily scared about driving in bad weather—been there, done that—but everything that goes with…
