Made last night and loved it. Used what I had... salsa versus enchilada sauce and added more vegetables. I must try again & make as listed.

I forgot to add the step where the chiles go.. Just toss it in when you're simmering the meat and sauce together.
Absolutely fantastic! More filling than I thought it would be! Will absolutely make it again!

Awesome and easy (I did layer in s few corn tortillas)!

I liked it a lot and it was pretty simple/hard to screw up [and I am not a cook] -- in the future I'd probably add in some more peppers [jalapenos at least!] just because I love spice.

This is one of my new favorites. Feels like eating Lasagna and is creamy and flavorful. I will probably make even more for leftover lunches.

Great recipe!! I make this for myself and take it for lunch all week, just add lettuce and it's like a taco salad. Yummy!! I would make this for family get togethers and serve it with tortilla chips, it would make a great dip for a lot of people.
