My husband and I loved this dish. Would suggest using a 9x13 inch dish and reducing the layers to three, and using rectangular tortillas. Used Pepper Jack cheese. Also, think it might stay in the oven a bit longer so it is hotter. I will definitely make again.
This had no taste whatsoever and was just plain bland. Won't be making this one again.
This was good and easy. However, I'm a big fan of spicy dishes and found this to be slightly bland. Would definately add more spices, perhaps chipolte peppers, to the bean mixture and maybe a layer of salsa inside the pie. Some fresh cilantro would be good too. And the recipes really serves just 4.
I get 8 inch tortillas and then bake in an 8 inch cake pan. Works out great!
What a great "clean out the pantry" dinner! Skipped the olives and peppers, added an onion and two cloves of garlic and used a 2 qrt casserole dish. Simplfied the seasoning and just added a packet of taco seasoning. It was so good we forgot to add the sour cream =) Great meatless fast weekday option; it's now on rotation!
Oh my WOW!!!! This was fantastic! I didn't have a deep round cake pan, so I used two shallow ones and 6 tortillas (instead of 5). THIS WAS SOOOOOO GOOD! I had a vegan friend over so I substituted tofu cheese and sour cream and my husband couldn't even tell, he loved it and he's a meat eater to the core. Next time I might play around--add another jalepeno or some onions. This has become an immediate staple in our house--THANKS!
This recipe is now a staple in our home. Sometimes I cut the tortillas into quaters and just layer them in a square dish. It works just as well. My husband said, "This tastes just like Taco Bell, only better!" (And he loves Taco Bell!)
Enjoyed recipe very much. I wonder if it shoudn't have a little more liquid as it seemed a little dry
