    Sirpezy's Note:

    I was looking for an easy and fast Mexican casserole and I got a few ideas from a couple recipes here on Zaar and then added my own touches and ingredients. This is an extra creamy casserole, just delicious! And this is a very versatile recipe. Use whatever type of meat you'd like, delete the onions for an even faster prep time, add jalapeños, etc. Delete the tortillas and it is an awesome enchilada filling or even an appetizer dip.

      It was good, but not my favorite recipe. Something didn't taste quite right. My boyfriend only took a couple bites before having nothing else to do with it. We LOVE mexican food, but I think I'll stick to the recipes that we're familiar with.

      I really enjoyed this. My kids were not big fans, but they're very hit & miss so I wasn't overly surprised by that. I'll make it again but I may leave the tortillas out and serve it over chips - so nacho style - to appeal to my kids a little more. Made for PAC Spring '12.

      This was great! I have made it twice and have gotten great reviews from my DH both times. The second time I had to use Cambell's cheddar cheese soup because I can't find the pepperjack anymore. I added some of the rotel to the cheese to try to make up for that, and it was still really good. I also used 4 large tortillas with this.
