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.

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!!

My only change would be More Layers. My old world Italian Mother-in-Law couldn't believe how good and light this recipe was - she wants me to make it again.
