Mexicali Hamburger Casserole

Mouthwatering Mexicali Hamburger Casserole with a cornbread topping

You can make this Mexicali Hamburger Casserole as hot or not as you wish. I added 1 teaspoon of Dried Crushed Chilies and it was HOT!

I am sure from my recipes lately, you can see I am on a Mexican roll here - that happens a lot when I am cooking and as I mentioned in a previous post, most of the recipes, which I have made the last couple of weeks days, have been found on-line.

The original recipe, here, was a little confusing in the ingredient part, and also, I could not find Yellow Cornmeal, apparently not a big thing in SA!

  5. Linda, I think I'd like this but wouldn't put in the olives and would make up for the extra bit of salty taste another way. Cheers
