Toppings Galore!


One of my favorite ways to eat this tortilla casserole is with my favorite toppings.

Smashed avocado, sour cream and black olives are mine.

The kids love to pour a heat nacho sauce over the top with jalapeno peppers.

Chopped tomatoes, shredded lettuce and taco sauce really are great additions to top off this casserole dish as well.

Comfort Food



The tortilla casserole is filling and a great comfort food all winter long.


You can adjust the serving size just by doubling the recipe ingredients and using a larger 13 x 9 sheet cake pan.


This easy recipe will feed a large family inexpensively.


Delicious food doesn't have to be hard and everyone loves this tortilla casserole with all that melted cheese!
