We liked this very much. I used corn tortillas, since I was out of flour, and I added sliced black olives. I will make it again. Thanks for sharing.
Easy to make and it seems that it would be versatile as well. I think next time I might add some black beans or olives or corn to the mixture. I'm sure beef would work as well as chicken. I made this with 8 smaller tortillas (with two kind of overlapping for each layer) and a bit more sauce and it was much more than 2 servings. Thanks for posting!
So good for something different to make! I doubled the recipe to feed 4 and we had plenty. The kids and DH really liked this one, so it looks like I will be making them again soon! Thanks for sharing!
