Mexican Nacho Casserole

I have been making this for so long, I am not sure where the recipe came from, but it is one of my favorite main dishes and 4 of the 5  picky eaters at my house love it as well. The one who doesn’t like it, doesn’t like sour cream and I think it is necessary to top this dish with some sour cream. It ends up tasting a lot like Chicken nachos; all the flavors blend together so well.  This dish is also really quick and easy to make, great for a busy weekday night.  Serve it with a side of fruit or salad.
