On a recent trip down memory lane, my husband and I were flipping through his grandmother’s recipe box. She called this recipe “Noodle Pleaser”. Simply prepared with tomato sauce, ground beef, cream cheese, and wide egg noodles, there is no doubt as to why it got that name.

I bet just about every family has one of these beef noodle casseroles in their recipe file. Easy, cheesy and comforting. This is the kind of meal I want my kids to come home to.

Salsa Chorizo Casserole

I have an addiction to Mexican food. Mexican-American.  Tex-Mex.  Authentic Mexican.  Just about any recipe with that flavor profile is a home run for me.  Is it the big bold flavors?  The passionate use of cheese?  The bright and colorful ingredients? Salsa Chorizo Casserole captures all of these things I love.

Did I just say “passionate use of cheese”?

(awkward silence)

Warning…this recipe also includes the wanton use of salsa verde and chorizo.
