I love anything with flour tortillas! This is by far my favorite mexican casserole. It's quick, easy & makes great leftovers for lunch! This was a Durkee onion ring recipe, but I changed it around quite a bit.

I love anything with tortillas, too, and this is my favorite Mexican casserole now! I had started making this from a source on-line (maybe the original recipe), which used canned tomatoes instead of salsa and mixing it into the meat. I read yours while I was preparing and added pinto beans to my hamb., 16 oz chopped tomatoes, and seasoning. The beans are really good in this. I used the extra large tortillas, so I only needed 2 per layer. The French fried onions added a lot to the flavor, too. The whole family enjoyed. Thanks Lizzybob- Roxygirl
This was very good. We also thought the onions made this casserole. Will be making it again soon. Thanks for posting.
Ole! An easy, delicious casserole - the french-fried onion rings make it! The only change I made was to use ricotta, rather than cottage cheese for a smoother texture. Also, I just "poured" from a large jar of picante sauce - would say I used 10-12 oz. Yummy!
