"My friends and I really liked this, we left the beans out and added more cheese"
"It sounds a lot like what I make using a pack of dry enchilada mix prepared by package instructions. We prefer corn tortillas. This version loses me with the canned soup. I layer mine like lasagna."
"This was great! Only change I made was I used 1 lb. ground beef. Spicy with just enough heat to give it a kick. This is a keeper."
"Yum! So good! I used one pound of hamburger and halved the spices and tortillas but left everything else the same. The amount of sauce was good. Great flavor. Hubby really enjoyed this too."
"I made this using some leftover taco meat from Superbowl and added an extra pound of ground beef and used taco seasoning instead of the spices. I omitted the flour tortillas and used cooked minute rice (6 cups) on the bottom of the pan topped with the meat and soup mix. I topped mine with leftover Que Bueno cheese sauce and it was so good! A quick and easy dish that can be made the night before and popped in the oven when needed."
