This is a wonderful recipe and has fantastic flavor! I doubled the recipe so we can have it again this week! I used burrito size tortillas in a large round oven proof stock pot/dutch oven. It worked perfect.

Made the recipe as directed with the exception of using corn tortillas instead of flour tortillas. It was ok, but tasted more like tomato sauce with too much chili powder. If you use a good brand of chili powder (I used Penzey’s), then 2 tablespoons is way to much. My spouse did not like it, so looks like I will not be making it again.

Didn't have 2 cans of tomato sauce, or chilies, so I took a can of mild Rotel and mixed it with a can of tomato paste. The bottom tortillas were hard. My husband suggested spreading some enchilada or taco sauce first, next time. Also could have been the fact that the tortillas were organic. Not finding too many organic foods we like! The rest of it was great!

This was an easy and inexpensive weeknight meal.I used corn tortillas because they don't seem to get as soggy. Will most likely make again.

Simple & fairly quick to make! I didn't have tomato sauce, substituted tomato soup, turned out great! If you have eaters that don't like beans, you substitute refried beans.

This is one recipe I'll be keeping in my stack of favorites. Full of flavor and I loved how affordable the ingredients were. I did double the amount of cheese and added another layer of tortillas.

Our family enjoyed this recipe and would make again. Husband licked his plate! We added chopped avocados and sour cream as an optional topping at table, and everything else made as directed. Delicious.

Because I wanted it to taste like tamales, I subbed corn tortillas instead of the whole wheat tortillas. Took it to a potluck and didn't bring any home.
