Since this recipe fills four 13-inch x 9-inch baking dishes, it's perfect for feeding a gang. I set out small bowls of shredded cheddar cheese, diced onions and diced tomatoes so folks can add their own garnishes. -Richard Clements, San Dimas, California

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 19, 2012

"Our family and friends love this recipe and I've shared it many times. We also add lettuce, sour cream and other toppings sometimes. To make it more hearty we add rice to the filling. I often make a double batch to freeze some (without rice added)."

"I ran across this recipe years ago in one of my Taste of Home magazines. I have been making it for years and it is always a great hit. I always makes sure I have sour cream, lettuce and tomatoes for toppings. Once I made it even in a crock pot and it was DELICIOUS!! I just torn up the tortillas in pieces."
