I was looking for a quick and different way to use the leftover shredded beef cooked in a crock pot the day before. I came up with this recipe which is quick and easy without having to roll each tortilla individually . My husband doesn't like corn tortillas or red sauce so I used green sauce and flour tortillas and layered them in a 8 1/2 inch casserole dish that fit the torrillas perfectly. I knew it was a hit when he went back for a second and third helping! It also tastes great left over the next day. You could also make it with shredded chicken. (Cooking the beef is not included in prep time)
