When I need comfort food, this delicious vegetarian tortilla casserole a go to recipe.
It is easy to assemble and doesn’t take long to bake. You can follow this recipe exactly or you can make adjustments to suit your taste.
I’m a wimp, so I go easy on the spice. If you like it hot, you can add more before it goes into the oven. Of course, you can also add hot sauce, when you are eating.
