Tastes really good..... except for the flour tortillas! You have to use corn and lightly crisp them to hold up in the moisture of the dish. The flour ones turn into the texture of wet paper. I added cooked chicken to the mix and less sour cream and cheese.
Very good, pretty easy, and good for leftovers too! Amazing how the simple combination of 1 egg, sour cream, and mexican cheese makes a filling that seems like ricotta cheese. We used whole wheat tortillas and no-sodium black beans to make it a bit healthier. Next time will try it with black olives.
This is an awesome recipe. I did tweak it just a little though. I used corn tortillas instead of flour. Flour tortillas get too soggy for me. I also added a small can of dices green chilies for a little extra kick...amazing!! Then I added 1 lb of ground beef and cooked it as if I were making tacos..meaning...I used a taco seasoning packet to season the ground beef and then added it to the tomato sauce mixture. IT TURNED OUT FABULOUS!! This is not nearly as difficult as it may seem. We served it with Spanish rice and a small salad! Excellent idea for a weeknight meal for families! Enjoy!!
Followed directions and turned out great!! Kids loved and the boyfriend did too. Had tons of yummy leftovers.... OH! and make sure you use a large pan or place a cookie sheet underneath pan just in case it bubbles over, i was too excited to make this and forgot about the bubbling over!! whoops! ENJOY!!
I found this to be fairly bland - no chilies in my tomatoes, so maybe that's part of the reason. The sour cream, egg, cheese mixture needed some serious salt and pepper and screamed to be ricotta instead of this creamy imposter. Yes, the tortillas got soggy, but I didn't mind all that much. I didn't mind eating this, but there are better recipes with more pizzazz.
I tried these last night and they were amazing. My husband who is a person who doesn't really like new foods, was into this recipe too. I made a couple changes to make them more to my diet and what we eat in my house. Instead of adding the spices, i used a taco seasoning package. I also substituted corn tortillas instead of flour ones. My husband can not eat sour cream, so instead of sour cream, I used non fat plain yogurt. I also added meat to mine, but this of course it optional.
Sorry, but this was really runny. I'm not sure if I did something wrong. I did leave the egg out b/c I halved the recipe and I noticed that other people said that they left it out too. If I were to make it again, would probably add double the corn and black beans and possibly just leave out (or at least reduce) the sour cream. I only had one flour tortilla, so used corn for the rest and I really didn't see much of a difference--both were soggy. The taste was good, but I ended up just eating it with tortilla chips. Was easy and pretty quick to make.
This was delicious, easy to make (like the author says, don't let the all the "steps" scare you away), and everyone loved it. I used corn tortillas because that's what I had and it was yummy. I will definitely make this again.
I liked this very much, but I felt it would be even better with corn tortillas. Thanks for sharing.
