I originally tasted this recipe at a friends house in high school. Her mom would make this as a weekly meal. It tasted so good, I knew it took a lot of time and effort. No so!! After some years of downright begging, I convinced her to give me the specifics. It's quick and easy and very good. My kids love it as much as I do. I always make one with cheese and one without for my husband who gags at the thought of cheese. I have also made it on top of the stove and fried my tortillas to a crisp with a little salt on top (kinda like no cheese nachos) Believe me, when you live with someone who doesn't eat cheese, you learn how to work around it. Oh, how I yearn for lasagna!!!! But that's another story. Anyway, enjoy!!

I made this and actually didn't try it until the next day. As leftovers, it is OUTSTANDING! Very easy to make. If someone writes a book of foods that make great leftovers, they should include this.
