This is an excellent recipe! It can be made ahead and cooked later. I used ricotta cheese since I prefer it over cottage cheese. The tortillas make a nice change over pasta.

I made this recipe for a Mexican potluck we were having with our small group at church. Even before I had the casserole in the oven, my dad licked the spoon from the sauce and said, "MMMMMM, that's good!!!" I had to agree!!! At the potluck, there wasn't much left and what was will make a delicious option for lunch! I did use a red pepper since I favor them over green because they're sweeter and I used a Kraft Mexican cheese blend too. Thank you so much for a delicious Mexican recipe!!!

This was fine for being a comfort food casserole. I brought it to a church pot luck. Only about half was eaten. I did add an additional cup of salsa and I combined the called for cottage cheese with a cup of sour cream just because I had a hard time spreading out everything. I also left out the olives. I might make this again when I have leftover taco meat and salsa.
