    Happy Hippie's Note:

    Another recipe I found in an old recipe card file that I'm placing on Zaar for safekeeping. I remember making this for our family when I was in high school and everybody loved it. By the way, me and high school are ancient history, LOL!

      This is now my favorite mexican casserole by far! I used flour tortillas because i didn't have any corn ones. The consistency of this is just right not too wet and not too dry. My husband thought it was great and he usually won't eat anything with cottage cheese in it! Yum!
