I was hesitant about the mushroom soup, but it worked well for holding the tomatoes&meat together, and tasted great with all the other seasonings. If you didn't know the recipe, you would not think this dish had mushroom soup in it from the taste of it.This was easy and tasted good. Next time around, I will look for ways to reduce salt (prepared beans and soup, plus tomatoes add up to a lot of salt) -- but this is a great recipe for tweaking. I used turkey instead of beef and it tasted great.The casserole looked good and held together when served.
I did what others mentioned and added some cheese between layers. 2.5 cups of cheese was plenty for us, but if you love melted cheese then the 4 cups would be for you.
Somehouw, I ended up with a layer of tortillas on top -- rather than meat mixture-- and it worked fine with cheese atop that. Not messy when served.
This is great comfort food, or Midwestern potluck fare. So easy to make and you can customize to your liking.
Update: made it with leftover thxgiving turkey and it was fantastic. Really nice way to liven up the holiday.
