This is a great recipe that we love. I always get great reviews and requests for the recipe. I usually add ground beef to the vegetable mixture as we love meat!

This was good. I made it with whole grain tortillas and it came out great. I am having the leftovers for dinner tonight.

This has lots of flavor and I'm happy that it's lower in fat than most Mexican casseroles. I made as directed, using corn tortillas and 1/2 lb. of gr. beef. Sour cream is not necessary. I froze half for another meal for the 2 of us. Notes to self: Use 1 med. onion and 1 med. pepper. 10" skillet is not big enough.
