This was fantastic! When I was making it, I had my doubts. I didn't think that stacking the tortillas on top of one another in a round 2 1/2 quart casserole dish was going to work. I thought the tortillas would end up being raw and bready. Wrong! Everything cooked through, and it was delicious. I only ended up with five layers, instead of six, and I didn't use the olives. Once cooked, I topped it with sour cream and homemade guacamole. This recipe is a keeper.
