This turned out great, and I only "loosly" followed the recipe. I had left over taco meat which I layerd, and green enchilada sauce. It was quick and easy, something I can start making on the fly. I appreciate the easy to follow recipe. It's a keeper. ; )
Very yummy! I will wait to add the tortillas next time as they get mushy. Would be fab with tortilla chips and eat as a dip too!!! Thanks for sharing!
Delicious 😋I spread the leftovers on a plate, heated it in the microwave with more shredded cheese on top. Served it as a dip with scoop
Chips. Everyone really liked it.

Can you make it with tortilla chips or flour tortillas. For some reason the one someone brought to work I didn't like the gummy corn taste?
Yes, use corn or whatever you like.

It was so easy and so good. I forgot to take a picture but it looks just like the picture on the recipe. We ate it two nights in a row and love with homemade refried beans
