Reviews for Tahoe Casserole
"As I stated before you put corn tortillas down in greased pan ,then meat, then cheese and repeat with the extra olives on top. I baked it uncovered at 350 for 30 minutes and it came out hot and moist. We topped it with dollops of sour cream which we felt it really needed."
"You need to clarify tomatoes, but also layering in the order you give would put tortillas on top which would dry them out during baking. I imagine you should layer tortillas, meat and then cheese and repeat with cheese ending up on top."
"I was looking for a recipe that I could make ahead of time, and reheat later. This was very easy, and every time I have made it whether for a church potluck or family function, I always get positive comments on it."
"This says to "add....tomatoes" It doesn't show additional tomatoes in the list ingredients other than the tomato sauce. Any clarification?"
