This was fabulous! I changed it up a little bit by substituting the olives for canned, diced green chiles and sauteed onion. Also used red enchilada sauce. Easy to make and extremely tasty! I will definitely make this recipe again!!


This recipe was very good. I added 1 lb. cooked ground beef seasoned w/taco seasoning in the middle layers. Also used a Mexican Blend cheese and red enchilada sauce, and some refried beans(canned kind)in the layers. The top layer of enchilada sauce I covered with more of the mexican cheese. It turned out great! Even my picky 5 year old ate it! We did like it a lot better with extra sour cream on it while we were eating it though.


I love this recipe. Instead of using the real cheese and Sour cream you can sub it with the soy or non-dairy stuff and it still comes out yummy. My parents loved it. You can play around with it and make it your own. I'm a college student and it helps to have one basic recipe that you can change as needed. It's also good the next day if there's any left over.
