"This was an easy and inexpensive weeknight meal.I used corn tortillas because they don't seem to get as soggy. Will most likely make again."

"Simple & fairly quick to make! I didn't have tomato sauce, substituted tomato soup, turned out great! If you have eaters that don't like beans, you substitute refried beans."

"This is one recipe I'll be keeping in my stack of favorites. Full of flavor and I loved how affordable the ingredients were. I did double the amount of cheese and added another layer of tortillas."

"Because I wanted it to taste like tamales, I subbed corn tortillas instead of the whole wheat tortillas. Took it to a potluck and didn't bring any home."
