"The whole family really enjoyed this! It was super easy to prepare ahead and put in the fridge to bake right before dinner. I used my Dutch oven & it was the perfect size. The only thing I altered from the recipe, was that I omitted the olives."

"Trying to cook for two is a huge challenge. I love this because it is easy to cut in half. Follow directions but use a small loaf pan and cut the tortillas in half. I cut the baking time to 30 minutes. Perfect for 2!"

"I didn't have a large enough casserole dish so I made it in a 11" springform pan. Make sure to let it rest 10 minutes before releasing the spring so it doen't ooze all over! The layers make it fancy enough to serve to company."

"This recipe is in my TOH Country Ground Beef cookbook.   Before I made it, the first time, I charted out what went on each layer.   Worked out great."

"This is one of our favorite recipes, only thing I do cook the onion with the ground beef becasue I found the onion would not cook enough for our taste. I also have substituted chicken for ground beef, just cook it cut it up and saute it with the onions before layering."
