Made this for my weekly contribution to the office lunch. Everyone loved it. Was spicey but not too. Served Fritos with it. Thanks for a great recipe!

This recipe was great! It was easy and my 5 year old had a great time helping me tear up the tortillas. I used a HOT Rotel and it was really really spicy... but we love spicy food. My husband LOVED the casserole and wants me to make it for a work pot luck next week. I only used 1 tbs of chili powder and still thought it was too much. Next time I will use less. Otherwise, great recipe!! Thanks for sharing!

I really enjoyed this recipe and I do not normally make casseroles. I omitted the celery. I also added the cumin like someone suggested. My husband decided to add more kick to it and added ground cayenne red pepper along with the chili powder. It was really good! I used the corn tortillas this time and they were really good but my husband wants to try it with the flour tortillas so next time I will use the flour ones. Thanks for a great, new recipe for my rotation!
