Notes

My Mom developed this recipe many years ago. It has been a family favorite, a pot luck favorite. This also is great for large group parties. You can make it ahead of time. I have also made it using crepes instead of tortillas, just a different twist. It's wonderful anyway you make it, Enjoy!
