Reviews forCreamy Layered Casserole
"We didn't like this much. The entire dish was overly salty and after cooking in the oven, the tortilla chips started to get mushy from the sauce. We threw out the leftovers. I can see how others might like this, but this meal just wasn't for us."
"OMG This was delicious"
"This makes a delicious supper. I didn't have Monterey Jack cheese. I used a combination of part Cheddar, part Colby, and part Pepper-Jack. I will keep serving this dish."
