When you are in the mood for Mexican food, but want something different than tacos or enchiladas, then this casserole would be what you are looking for. For this recipe, I would drain the ground beef after cooking it. Instead of the jalapeno pepper, I would use canned, diced mild green chilies. I would also use unsalted tomato sauce and reduced fat cheddar cheese.
