Loved this recipe! So easy to put together, with the filling being thick & spreadable instead of thin & saucy. My only change was to use flour tortillas, as we don't eat the corn. The sauce was simple & delicious. Definitely a kid-friendly meal. Thanks for posting, lazyme! Made for Election Eats tag game.
