  • Re: Burrito Casserole (microwave style)

     Liz, what brand of canned or bottled tamales are you using?  I love them, Brian not so much, but one or two cans on the shelf would keep me happy for 1 or 7 meals anyway!  ; )  I dont think I have ever seen them on the shelves in cans or bottles...will be checking this out this week.  I usually pay an enormous amount for ...

  • Re: Burrito Casserole (microwave style)

     I can find it about the same costs here, and Brian is lactose intolerant so he eats very little of it.  I have a very low protein count so I eat all I want!  Works out great for me.  LOL Today I am making creamy tuna tettrazini with some havarti, queso, parmesan, whole whipping cream and evaporated milk.  That will make ...
