I love this recipe, with the modifications suggested by other reviewers-- I cut the ingredients in half and assemble the casserole in a tall round dish, and it fits perfectly. But because it's higher & denser, it needs to be baked for maybe 15-20 min. longer than the recipe says. I add a package of (low sodium) taco seasoning to the browned beef, and nstead of taco sauce and tomatoes (and sometimes chiles), I just use a 16-oz jar of salsa. I use a different one every time, but the ones I will use again are Newman's Own Chunky Salsa (Medium, with the small can of chiles) and La Victoria Suprema (Mild, doesn't need the extra chiles). I add a big can of sliced olives instead of a small one, and a whole bag of frozen petite white corn kernels. I use low carb/high fiber tortillas because they're hefty and so don't lose their integrity in the mix. I probably use 2x the cheese as in the recipe, usually the pre-shredded Mexican-mix kind. I serve it with corn chips, fresh diced avocado, and sour cream. I always look at it and think "Wow, that's so much food" but every time, there are hardly any leftovers-- and this is really good reheated. Highly recommended!
