My family really liked this casserole. Very similar to an enchilada recipe that I make. I seemed to have too much to fit in a 9 x 13 pan; so I separated the ingredients into a 9 x 13 and a 8 x 11 pan. Made alot!! We are having leftovers tomorrow for lunch... Thanks for a great recipe. P.S. I softened the onion and garlic in the microwave with a tablespoon of margarine before I began to mix the ingredients. I also added the sour cream after boiling the soup mixture. I baked covered for 30 minutes at 350 and then uncovered the casserole and continued to bake for 10 to 15 minutes longer.

I was a little hesitant to try this recipe because when I think of a good Mexican dish I think red and tomatoes. I made half a recipe but used about 2 1/2-3 cups of cooked meat. I also add the meat to the sauce to save time. My half a recipe was enough for 4-6 servings. This was such a comfort food to me, I ate this for 2 1/2 days, breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. Next time I might try adding some beans and maybe some corn, this recipe was great as written.

Oh my this is good, and so easy! I used the Chicken Crock Pot Taco meat I made yesterday and I used the Mexican blend cheese 'cause it was on special at the store, but otherwise stuck mostly to the recipe and it was so good! We each had two helpings for dinner. I found my 9x13 didn't quite need 6 tortillas per layer - it usually worked out to about 5. Thanks for posting this!
