Awesome! Husband ate half of it in one sitting!! Kids loved it, too! I had most of the ingredients on hand ...except for the chiles so I used a can of Rotel. Came out fab! Will make again!

The flavor was very good; although the casserole was somewhat runny. Like another reviewer, I used corn tortillas (not crazy about flour) but the tortillas were kind of stiff and didn't cut up very easy (this is probably my fault). Overall, I think I will make this recipe again.

I made this last night for my hubby & I & we both really enjoyed it. I did use corn tortillas as I don't like flour tortillas in casseroles, too gummy. I cut the chili powder down to 2 Tbps. I added a can of black beans too. It also took longer than the 30 minutes. I cooked it for 45 minutes then took the foil off & cooked for 15 minutes more. Served it with a dollop of sour cream. Overall a good recipe to build on, thanks Donna for posting, we enjoyed it.
