    This dish was the most convenient in the variety 6 pack spices before they were discontinued. However, now that I am forced to make it from scratch. Its well worth the sacrifice. Its one of my "family's favorite dish" & that says a lot....coming from a latin family. Who usually wont eat anything thats not made from scratch. PLEASE, PLEASE BRING BACK THE 6pack spice pack. This meal took me an xtra 20mins to assemble this time around.

    I love this recipe! It's very forgiving. I've used ground beef and deer and have a meat-free version with extra beans in the oven. I've substituted rotel and a can of tomato paste for the chilies and one can of tomato sauce when I was out chilies. I've also tried corn tortillas, which my husband preferred, but I prefer the flour. It's great no matter what you do, and it's even better the next day!

    Really good quick & easy. i made it the night before and heated it the next day for dinner My family loved it. I thought the texture of the flour tortillas was a bit slimy ( maybe because it sat in the frig overnight?). The 2nd time I made it, I used corn tortillas and it was a lot better.

    My family loved this dish. I made several revisions as I didn't have some of the ingredients. I didn't have ground beef or turkey, so I used shredded chicken breast and about two cups of medium salsa instead of tomato sauce. I didn't use chili powder as the salsa was hot enough for us. I layered tortillas down first then meat mixture, tons of cheese and another layer of tortillas. Then finished off the meat with olives and tons more cheese. It was fantastic!!! Will make again and again and again..........

    I use chicken instead of beef when I make mine. I also serve it with sour cream and nacho chips. Best leftover dish and so quick and easy to make! Family favorite!
