This is perfect! I used two 14 oz. cans of Rotel tomatoes that I pureed because I don't relish canned tomato chunks. Because they were the hot variety, I omitted the pepper flakes and jalapeno. Used corn tortillas. We loved this so much and I will be making it again very soon. (Oh, I added even more cilantro...) Thanks, LondonKarma!
