Great recipe and super easy. I used 99% fat free ground turkey.
This was easy and relatively quick and tasted quite good.
Very good! I was afraid all the tomatoes would be overwhelming but it was great. I do not like corn tortillas so I only used 9 and added a can of mushrooms. It was a big hit with us. Will be making this one again!!
Absolutely delicious1
while this was good, I think it would be better with a little bit of sour cream (I added a small onion too) as the tortillas seemed to suck up a lot of the moisture.
I substituted a 12 ounce bag of veggie crumbles for the beef. The soy product takes on all of the flavors of the other ingredients.
i have had this recipe at home and use it about every 6 weeks. its at the top of my list of delicious casseroles. very easy and makes a lot
My family loved this recipe which I spiced up quite a bit (we like it hot.) I added 1/2 onion to the meat/green pepper mixture when browning (I did not use a red pepper as they are so darn expensive!,) and flavored the meat mixture with dry taco seasoning (the hot variety.) I added a can of black beans and a can of original flavor Rotel using almost the whole can of tomatoes with chillis. I added under a tsp of cumin and used medium salsa instead of mild. When assembling the layers, I added a layer of sour cream flavored with dry taco seasoning. Due to the comments I read, I used 1/2 soft corn tortillas and 1/2 tortilla chips when layering although I will just use the chips next time for more texture. For the last 5 minutes of cooking, I raised the oven temp 5 degrees, added a healthy layer of shreadded cheese, and a final layer of crushed chips. The dish did turn out pretty hot (more so than probably most would like it,) but we love it spicy and hot! It was delish!!
Pretty decent and easy meal! I did make some minor changes; I added cumin to the meat and pepper mixture as it was cooking. I added canned corn and black beans to the skillet as well and the diced tomatoes I used had green chilies in it, I also did drain the canned tomatoes. I used flour tortillas and I spooned the mixture into the 9 x 13 with a slotted spoon so that the mixture was not so mushy in the end. My husband really loved it.
This was very good. I will be making it again. I omitted the peppers and used canned tomatos with green chili's. I also added a can of black beans and also seasoned my meat with taco seasoning. I did use a bit more cheese than it calls for as well. It turned out great and my husband was asking for it again a few days later.
