Tortilla Casserole

Tacos is definitely a staple in my house, everyone loves them and it is a super quick and easy meal.  I do sometimes get sick of them and look for new ways to spice it up.  The other week our grocery store had a sale on Zatarains rice mixtures (their Jambalaya mix is AWESOME) they had a new one called red beans and rice so I picked it up to try.  I found this recipe on their site, made a few changes and really enjoyed it.  This was just as easy as making tacos, but had a very different taste.  This meal is super cheap, easy and delicious and perfect for dinner if you are in a hurry.
