      I enjoyed this meal quite a bit. I did make a half recipe and it makes a ton. Ended up with leftovers for days. I will say it was best fresh as the leftovers got a little soggy. But it was a great meatless meal. Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup.

      This was a hit with my entire family, especially my DH. I made this using whole wheat tortillas and V8 juice rather than tomato juice. Next time I make this I will add a little garlic and salt and pepper. I think this would also be delicious with a layer or two of meat or chicken. Thanks for posting flower!

      Delicious and healthy, too! I halved the recipe, using multi grain wraps instead of tortillas, 2% Mexican blend cheese, and a little less tomato sauce instead of tomato juice just cause it's what I had on hand. Wonderfully simple meatless meal that even my husband enjoyed. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
