    Absolutely delicious! I started to cook at 6:45 and i was done by 7:30. The only thing I changed was I added a layer of refried beans mixed with salsa and a layer of reduced fat mexican cheese blend. So it went tortilla, refried bean mix, riccotta cheese mix, meat, sprinkle cheese. Then on the very top I put another layer of riccotta and then sprinkled the cheese. I served it with fat free tortilla chips and corn. My husband hates beans and mexican but he cleaned his plate. He couldn't figure out what the bean layer was - he just liked the creamy taste - Great recipe  -  09 Feb 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This really is a delicious and versatile recipe. This is the 3rd time I've made it now and this is how we've decided we like it best: 2 10 inch tortillas & then 1 halved tortilla on each side (straight side to the edge of the pan). Half the meat mixture (2 lb ground turkey, diced yellow onion, taco seasoning, 1 14.5 can diced tomatoes & 1 can rotele), 2 cups shredded monterey/colby. Another layer of tortillas. Next is the ricotta with 1 egg and 1 4 oz can chilies whipped together and a can of corn over the top. Another layer of tortillas. Rest of meat with 2 small cans sliced black olives. Another layer of tortillas. 8 oz sour cream + 8 oz salsa mixed over the top of that, topped with 2 cups of mexi-cheese and sliced green onions on top. Bake as directed. This makes enough to feed myself and 3 growing boys with plenty to take into work to share. Thanks so much for the ideas and the recipe!  -  23 Jun 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was very yummy and the kids loved it! I did change a few things though, I used corn tortillas instead of flour, I decreased the water to about 1/2 cup, and I added pepper, chili powder, and some other spices to the ricotta. I also added cheese (a combination of cheddar and monterey jack) to the layers and on top. Very yummy!! This made enough for 3 meals for my family, so I froze the extra helpings.  -  04 Jan 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
