Cancun Casserole

Cancun Casserole created by Parsley

I had this at a church dinner years ago and HAD to have the recipe! It is deceptively flavorful and so rich. A nice Mexican rice and a dab of sour cream and avocado salad are tasty additions to make a complete meal.

    We really loved the flavor of this. I wonder if it would be better to use the crunchy type tortilla chips instead of the corn tortillas because they were hard to eat. And I agree with the others about putting the cheese on top in the last 10-15 minutes of cooking time. Besides those things, it was wonderful and I will definitely be making this again!!!

    I was not a fan. The consistency and texture was not desirable. Will not make again.

    YUMMY! Rich and creamy! I used 16 oz of imitation crab. I added the cheese on top during the last 15 minutes, because I didn't want it to get too brown. The bottom toretillas were moist and soft and the top ones baked up nice and crunchy. Thanx for sharing this. It's a great way to use imitation crab.
