Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Easy Casserole! So easy and delicious! It was a little spicier than expected, but still a winner for dinner with my family! I should note that I did omit the black olives.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast and delicious I made this for dinner, minus the olives, which my kids won't eat. It was super easy and delicious! Two out of three kids liked it, so that's a win in my book. It is a bit on the spicy side, but they still gobbled it up. I will be making this again.
