"Very tasty and easy. I cut the recipe in half, but only used 3 tortillas to layer the bottom of a 8x8 dish. I used Morning Star meal starter instead of beef or turkey because i had it in the freezer and it's super quick to heat up (no defrosting or browning). I topped the casserole with some spring salad mix and tomatoes. Next time, I will definitely add a layer of low fat refried beans; it would make this dish to die for. Also, maybe add some veggies in there, maybe some corn or even squashes..."- pineapplebutter

jenlormer 4 months agovery good flavor. I didn't think cottage cheese would be good in tacos, but it added a nice touch. It was a little dry so next time I make I plan to add some rotel to give it some moisture and spice.

Justinpodm 5 months agoAmazing tasting! I really like this recipe. Just one note. It says to make 4 cups of lettuce. It was way too much.
MsNashay 5 months agoDelicious but I added some onions, green peppers, and seasonings to the meat, and flour tortillas based on other reviews. It was a hit!
