Made for Spring PAC 2013 - This was fun to make & excellent to eat. The only problem I had was my own as my smallest springform pan was quite a bit larger than the tortillas & I did not realize that ahead of time. BUT the recipe is very cook-friendly & went well, even using the lrg pan. I made 2 sml chgs, but otherwise made the recipe as written. I added black olives to the meat mixture & some corn kernels to the "tomato relish" as the can amt exceeded the recipe amt. There was just enough extra meat mixture to make 1 burrito rollup. The only thing missing was a pitcher of Margaritas & sadly no one in Iceland knows how to make them. Thx for posting this recipe & helping me to revisit my Dallas roots. :)
