"Use lower sodium taco seasoning, I did and it helped to not make it overly salty as those seasoning packets always do. My boyfriend and I really enjoyed it. Also crush your chips very finely. Makes it easier to eat."
"This was a bit heavy. I used whole wheat tortillas and Italian sausage. Next time I would use more cheese. Family said they liked it. We also made a loaf of French bread and a spinach salad."
"This was fantastic! The whole family loved it. I did do a few things differently-I skipped the chilies (since my kids don't like them) and I added a touch of cumin. I also skipped the crushed chips and decided to top it w/ a layer of tortillas, enchilada sauce, and cheese. I will definitely make this again!"
"Great recipe. Made with corn tortillas and without the added calories of the crushed tortillas chips on top."
"This was great! I followed the recipe exactly except I didn't have black beans. I did one layer of flour tortilia on the bottom, instead of just starting with the meat on the bottom layer."
