I can remember how many times I have made this recipe and it always is a pleaser. Serve with rice or just as is with a small salad.

I came to post this recipe, and here it is! This is a great, filling recipe that is vegetarian but keeps the male carnivores in my family begging for more :O). I usually up the cheese to 2 cups, just so there's a nice melted crust on the top, and I only use 8 tortillas. Healthy, fast, and very satisfying.
