    Sounds delicious, I’ve been searching for an easy Mexican recipe. This may be the one. Sounds like it makes a lot, I’m cooking for two and am wondering if this recipe can be cut in half.
    I’m hoping to make this soon as these are common ingredients in my kitchen. Would love to hear from you, if not I’ll wing it and let you know how it turns out. Aloha!

      Thanks! Yes, you could cut this in half. Just use an 8×8 pan instead. You may find that you need 8 tortillas, though, instead of 6. Otherwise, it should work out well cut in half. Though, if you like leftovers, this does re-heat well. Good luck! =)

    Do you know if this would work as a freezer meal? And If so, how to convert it to such? Trying to get a stock pile of veggie and gluten free meals in my freezer.

      Honestly, I haven’t tried it. I’m not sure how well the corn tortillas would work if they’re frozen. If you try it, I would be interested to hear how it turns out!

      That’s not a dumb-ish question at all! Yes, they are soft corn tortillas. If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask! =)

    I pinned this a few months ago, but made it for dinner tonight! It was VERY tasty! I added about a cup of frozen corn and about a 1/2 cup of sliced black olives. It was a GREAT flavor. (served with a side of sour cream). I wonder for those with children who may not like the heat of the Rotel (even the mild is a bit hot for people who don’t like Rotel’s heat), if one could use two cans of the diced tomatoes. Also – it could have been my oven – I had to cook it for about 20 minutes longer than above notes – in order to get all the cheese melted and heated all the way through. It really was a yummy recipe. Thanks for posting!

      I’m glad you liked it!! Yes, you can substitute diced tomatoes for the Rotel or use one can of each. I’ve also used the diced tomatoes with lime and cilantro, and that’s really good in this, too.

      It’s hard to tell with ovens. I know oven temperatures vary widely, but I’m glad you were able to make it work! =)

        If you substituted the diced tomatoes for the Rotel, would you be using 3 total cans of diced tomatoes? And would it taste ok if you used italian style diced tomatoes?

        • says

          Usually, the diced tomatoes come in a 15 oz. can vs. Rotel’s 10 oz. can. So, you could use 2 cans of diced tomatoes and you’d end up with the same amount of tomatoes. I’ve never used Italian style, so I’m not sure how the Italian seasoning would work. I’ve used fire roasted, onion and garlic, and tomatoes with green chiles, and all of those have worked well.

      Me too! I could spend all making cookies, but I just don’t have that same energy for making dinner. I hope you all enjoy it!! =)
