What a delicious casserole! I LOVED the great Enchilada flavor without the hassle of dipping each tortilla, filling, and rolling. It came together in a flash, and was a REAL family pleaser. My only changes were to replace the chopped green chilies with some chopped fresh cilantro...my sons don't care for the chilies...and use a tad less hot sauce. This will most certainly be a repeated dish! Thanks once again Kitten!
