    It was awesome! My family cleared their plates and were still asking for more. I double layered it, putting sauce and cheese in between, like an enchilada lasagna, to make it a little thicker. I also put the tortillas in the oven to heat them instead of the microwave since it was preheating. Good for a quick meal option.

    turned out great! This recipe is super simple to make. I added taco seasoning to the meat and dumped a can of Rotel on top before adding cheese, too. It turned out delicious!

    Really easy, everything is already cooked so you just need to mix, roll, and bake. Came out more as a casserole, possibly used too much enchilada sauce on top but the tortillas broke apart. Added jalapeños and some chili powder on top, added black beans, green Chilis, and salsa to mix. Definitely would make again, easy and flavorful.

    Very easy to make. It did not take very long to make. It just wasn't our personal favorite. I wouldn't make it again, that's not really a reflection on the recipe.
