Very good flavor. I probably would have given it four stars if I’d made it exactly as recipe stated. Instead of buttering the tortillas, I spread them generously with refried beans, then before serving I added tomatoes, sour cream and hot salsa.

This is similar to a premade kit you can buy in the grocery store, which is a family favorite. They enjoyed this just as well. I left out the olives.

Great flavor but i think next time I'll add in bell peppers and possibly a can of diced tomatoes.

I can make this dish New Mexico style, all of you all would be on your knees to know the recipe, with mexican rice, beans and ground beef smothered in New Mexico red or green chili it would be to die for. It's ranchero enchilada style not a layered tortilla pie.

My mom made this recipe when I was very young. She made it in stacks for a while and then turned it into what she called New Mexican Lasagna (in a cake pan and layered as this recipe). I am now a senior citizen but have used this similar recipe for decades. The only difference is that she layered the tortillas by over lapping and piling the other ingredients in layers and then slicing as one would with lasagna.. She did add a layer of refried beans, but otherwise, the recipe is very, very similar. It is, and has been a big favorite in our family for many, many years. Thank you!
