Our family loves Mexican food, so this flavorful, satisfying casserole is a favorite. It's nice to have a way to get the taste of burritos and be able to cut servings any size you want. -Joyce Kent, Grand Rapids, Michigan

MY REVIEW

"An all-time, all-family favorite since it was first published in TOH! Our oldest daughter has even requested that I make this recipe for her wedding reception next fall! THAT'S how much it's enjoyed in our family. We have six children, most of whom now have their own homes. But, this one is frequently requested by all of them. I follow the recipe exactly as written."

"Have made this recipe a lot over the years, we love it. It is always well received. Sometimes I buy the enchilada sauce in the can to make it a bit easier. Extra cheese and garlic is always a good idea. Don't leave out the beans, you can even use fat free refried beans in the hot style to give it zip."

"This was a very good dish. I did add taco seasoning to the meat sauce because it just needed more flavor to us. Other than that, it was great!"

"My husband and I really enjoyed this! I halved everything and used 3, 10 inch tortillas and layered in a 10 inch pie plate. There was enough for dinner and lunches the next day."
