I love Mexican-themed meals. They are one of my favorite types of cuisine. Some of our favorites are this Taco Bake Recipe, or my recipe for Cornbread Mexican Casserole which goes great with any kind of Mexican dish.

When I see a Mexican dish in an old recipe book, I’m all in. I love, love, love any type of Mexican food. The family has no choice, but to love it along with me. This Mexican Noodle Casserole is definitely a new favorite.
