    I love the idea. It is very creative and tastes lovely!!  -  13 Feb 2015


    This was just okay. It was pretty much just a big enchilada, IMO. One recommendation I have is to put a spoonful of sauce on the bottom of the pan before putting down the first layer of tortillas. I didn't, and the bottom layer was tough as shoe leather.  -  30 Dec 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Teriffic recipe!! I would recommend not to deviate from the corn tortillas. Using flour ones seem to turn out a little mushy. It's even more delicious when topped with your favorite peppers, lettuce, tomatoes and/or sour cream! Will make again and again!!  -  03 May 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
