Reviews for Chili Tortilla Bake
"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."
"Hubby and I both enjoyed this dish. Hubby had this over lettuce. Will definitely make again!!!"
"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."
"Our family enjoyed this recipe and would make again. Husband licked his plate! We added chopped avocados and sour cream as an optional topping at table, and everything else made as directed. Delicious."
"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."
"very tasty and will make again!"
"My hubby really liked this one. I liked that it was healthy. Beans, corn and green chiles make a good combination."
"Absolutely delicious! Lot of flavor and definitely a keeper in my recipe box!!"
"I needed a quick ground beef recipe tonight that didn't include pasta and this fit wonderfully! I only had one can of tomato sauce, so I substituted one cup of spaghetti sauce and I added an extra cup of frozen sweet corn. I baked it in a 9x11 dish without problems. It will easily feed our family of four two meals this week."
"This turns out amazing every time. It has a great kick without being too much! It's one of my go-to healthy week night recipes when I don't have tons of time to kill. Wouldn't change a thing about it! Serve with a mexi salad for some added greens."
"I made this for my husband and I, it is very good and quite easy to make. I used low carb whole wheat tortillas and a mixture of ground turkey, beef and pork for the meat."
"Leftovers were just as good!"
"This is the one of the easiest and most delicious recipes I've made. My husband requests it regularly and I have made it for company all with the same results... everyone loves it! I wouldn't change a thing!!"

"Deliciously seasoned, and even better with ground turkey. Can't go wrong with this for a cold winter evening!"
