My family of four devoured this! I used 12 thin corn tortillas (3 layers with one on each layer cut in half to cover full dish). 2 layers of beans and used Weight Watchers Mexican Blend Cheese in a 8X8 dish. We served it on a bed of lettuce with a dab of light sour cream. OH MY! Thanks so much!
It wasn't clear to me what size package of corn tortillas to use. In my grocery store they are available from 10 count to 36 count. I went with the 10 count and hoped it was right. This has a good flavor, but I found it to be somewhat dry. Because of the dryness I served it with salsa and sour cream.
Made this as per directions using Taco Seasoning Mix Taco Seasoning Mix. While the casserole was in the oven I prepared a side salad to serve with it. Real comfort food. Thanks for sharing.
