Mexican Casserole

The first time I made this dish was when we volunteered at a homeless shelter to serve dinner. We provided for the complete meal for about 200 people. I searched for a recipe that was a bit easy to make, and was very scaleable. This casserole is a complete, filling meal. It turned out great! It has now become one of our family staple meals.
