I made this for my large family and doubled the ingredients. Even the pickiest eaters loved it! I used half of the sour cream by substituting greek yogurt and I also used two cans of diced tomatoes with green chiles for half of the tomatoes called for. This is my new go to!!

Very nice,big hit! I did change the recipie as I did not have any tortillas and used tostitos scoops, I just crushed them! it was absolutely delish!!!

I changed the recipe a bit by using flour tortillas, and making enchiladas, rather than layering the ingredients. But either way, this dish is "delish". It'll be on my regular go-to list. I can hardly wait to make it again and try another variation.
