    bmcnichol's Note:

    I got this recipe from Emeril Lagasse but have modified it some. We love this. The original recipe called for 1 pound of ground beef and one pound of stew meat and 4 cups of fresh tomatoes.

    5. 5

      Place the pan in the oven and bake until the cheese has melted, about 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool slightly before slicing.

      We all liked this casserole although my son found it a bit spicy (that is just him). It took me longer to make as it had to simmer quite a while to reduce the liquid. I love the way the tortillas puff up so nicely on top. I think some black beans and corn would be a nice addition to this mix. We will be having this again. Thanks for sharing your recipe.
