"This was very easy and pretty good for a weeknight dinner. I made a couple of changes to suit my tastes.I cut the ingredients down to fit an 8x8 pan.I used chilli with beans instead of adding pinto beans. I also added a lb of ground beef. As someone else suggested I used corn tortillas instead of four .I will probably make this again when I'm in a hurry."

"I made this one because it sounded so good. However, the flour tortillas turned to dough after baking and that ruined an otherwise delicious dish. Maybe I'll try it again with corn tortillas."
