Friday Food: Low Carb Tex-Mex Casserole

To keep the them of our ketogenic week going we wanted to make sure we had a ketogneic Friday Food.  JL is personally skeptical of ketogenic based diets because the worry of there being enough foods that sound good to eat and eat a lot of.  Well that is why he picked this one because it is something that sounds great and you can make a lot of it.  Enjoy this one.
