  1. This was an excellent recipe -- When I made it, about a month ago, DH and I each had 2nds. It froze well too: I cooked it Friday night when I was just too drained to make the supper I had planned -- put it in the oven frozen and ate about an hour later.
  2. This recipe has been with my family from my great grandmother. Always a great staple dish. Seems so bland to me but I loved as a child and have made it for my kid... who still loves it. Only suggestion is serving a dollop of sour cream on the side.
  3. Great recipe!
  4. Quick and Excellent recipe.Made for family and saved leftovers.It tasted even better when reheated.Thanks!Will definitely be making again.
  5. Made 1/3 of the recipe place it in a 2 quart lasagna dish. I did add 1 tablespoon dried parsley and 1 tablespoon dried oregano to the meat mixture. Also used a meat sauce that I had left over which added a little more meat. I didn`t oil my tortillas(used 8) just sprayed the pan. I kicked it up with sliced jalapenos. And added 1 cup more cheese. We enjoyed this a lot! My DH said more jalapenos but likes this really HOT!


  1. We thought this was very good! I used ground turkey instead of ground beef, but I did everything else the same.Next time I might add some chili powder for some zip. It could have used something to spice it up. This was very easy which is always a plus! Thanks for a very good recipe!
