get back to me!!

I've never tried this recipe with tortilla, but it sounds like it would taste sort of like the Old El Paso soft taco bake (but with a little more flavor). Good Luck and let me know how it tastes with the tortillas.

Britti - I lived in Bucholtz. I believe it was in between Ramstein Airforce Base and Saarbrucken. My family had many great times and now many wonderful memories!

What a brilliant twist on a classic. And I always love any food that has the word Mexican in front of it!
