Spicy Beef N' Corn Casserole

When I made this, I added a bit more rice than it called for and it made it too dry and hubby said it have way too much rice.. LOL!! But otherwise it was really good. It had just the right amount of spice for me but if your not big on spicy dishes then cut back on the cayenne pepper.
