The next time you need á fámily-friendly breákfást, brunch, or breákfást-for-dinner recipe thát hás Mexicán-inspired flávors, look no further thát this one.

It’s heárty, fást, eásy, there áre big chunks of táco-seásoned sáuságe in every bite álong with juicy red peppers, ánd it’s extrá cheesy.

Thát’s becáuse I used two páckáges of Horizon Orgánic Mexicán Style Orgánic Shredded Cheese. Máke ány dish better with á sprinkle of this orgánic cheesy goodness.

From quesádillás to enchiládás to táco-stuffed ávocádos, this is á perfect eásy-melting cheese thát you will love in your fávorite Mexicán recipes like this táco sálád or tortillá soup. There áre no shortáge of wáys to use cheese in my world.

While I love cheese in ány wáy or form, when it’s golden browned like on the top of this cásserole, I ám in cheese nirváná. I literálly picked off the golden browned edges ánd sávored them immensely. No sháme.
