Ratings & Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from VERY YUMMY! VERY YUMMY!! I've been making this type of dish for 3 years and its one of my husband's favorite dishes. Here are a few alterations to make it even beter. I suggest adding shredded jack cheese to the cottage cheese layer to make it a little more creamy tasting. Instead of salsa you can also use diced tomatoes, but be sure to add more seasonings to meat. I've tried making this dish with the corn tortillas "raw"and slightly fried in oil and I think that it's better when the tortillas are cooked- the recipe comes out less "mushy". I always use sour cream as a garnish, and serve with white rice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I did what I see others have done. I did what I see others have done. I added a can of ranch style beans on the bottom on top of the first layer of tortillas. Next I added the cottage cheese and then the meat layer. I also used a package of taco seasoning, a red bell pepper, onion and a whole bag of frozen corn and only a few spoonfulls of salsa (all combined) in the meat. I topped the meat with shredded cheese and continued the next layers omitting the beans. I finished with an extra layer of tortillas and shredded cheese with olives on top. It was very good but I think I will cook my tortillas (like you would for enchiladas) next time for a little more crunch. We also topped our portions off with plain yogurt as a substitute for sour cream. The flavor was even better the next day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is so good and so easy to make, company worthy. This is so good and so easy to make, company worthy. I added a packet of taco seasoning to the meat mixture instead of the spices that the recipe calls for. Also, I put the salsa, a whole jar, on top of the whole thing, mixing it in with the meat makes the dish too watery. I also only had 2 layers, tortillas on bottom, then meat mixture, then cottage cheese, then shredded cheese, and repeat once more, finishing off with the salsa on top. I also used a whole onion, a whole bell pepper, more cheese, and a can of black beans.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent meal! Excellent meal! Made it for the office and they loved it. I used the soft corn tortillas to bake with. I had the crunchy tortillas on the side if anyone wanted that crunchy taste as well. I also added a spice I found called Roasted Garlic & Peppers which added that extra flavoring. This was a great meal for an office function. Passing it onto my family members as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have made this now several times, everyone ends up asking for the recipe each time. I have made this now several times, everyone ends up asking for the recipe each time. I use 2 jars of the Taco Bell salsa and triple the cumin and chili powder, now that I think about it I pretty much add a little more of everything including fresh garlic and more cheese. If there was 6 stars i would have given it 6 instead of 5!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good recipe. Very good recipe. I left out the onion and olives because my fiance don't like them. After reading the reviews, I doubled the chili powder, cumin, cheddar cheese and added a can or black beans. I used low fat cottage cheese and 2% milk mild cheddar cheese. My fiance would have probably given this 4 stars and I think that is because he didn't like the corn in it. Next time I will make it without the corn even though I didn't mind it.

This is the first recipe that I have printed from your website and discovered that the format is not very friendly. The problem being is the actual recipe printed off in TWO PAGES. This makes it difficult to read and save. I like my recipes on one page like what comes off the Campbell's website. Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this recipe! I love this recipe! I've made it twice now, and its become a staple in our home! Love the texture of the corn tortillas! I use a little extra salsa, just to make sure the corn tortillas cook up soft. I also double the cheese. Sour cream on top and yum so good!
