Directions Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 2 quart baking dish with cooking spray.
Add the entire ingredient list together in a large bowl; minus ½ cup cheese – save that for the topping later.
Stir everything together.
Pour into a greased baking dish.
Bake for 30 minutes at 350.
Sprinkle the top with ½ cup cheese and bake for an extra 10 minutes longer.

To make this a vegetarian/vegan meal just omit the meat and you can also use non-dairy cheese & non-dairy sour cream.
Serve with a side salad to get more of those yummy veggies in!
OR you can serve with a ¼ cup of guacamole.
