One such outcome is Tortilla casserole. It is a super easy, fast and of course a delish dish. There is no specific ingredient list for this dish, pretty much anything you have on hand. Stir them up on heat, layer it on tortilla and bake it. All the ingredients come together as a warm, hearty and satisfying meal. The bite of the beans, tomatoey flavor of salsa, and corn tortilla, all smothered with cheese is a great tasting combination! And a dollop of sour cream will totally intensify this tasty experience.

Hello tylerd8907,

I could not reply back on time. How did the dish turn out, hope you enjoyed it. I use sauces that have a mexican flavor to it but mostly I like taco sauce. Hope this helps
