I made this tonight. Dh loved it. I added a little more cheese and salsa. I also added taco seasoning to the meat. It was a big hit!

I made this dish last night and it was SO good! Thanks so much for posting it. I used ground turkey instead of beef and whole wheat tortillas to make it a bit healthier. I also took someone’s suggestion here and added black beans. It turned out great. My husband was very impressed since I rarely cook. 🙂
Add the tomato soup at full strength. No diluting necessary.
Maggie Two says
Looks really good and I will make it. However, I am not sure whether or not the tomato soup has to be diluted or just added full strength. Could someone please advise.
I make this exact dish except with leftover Turkey every Thanksgiving. It tastes great and is a wonderful use of all the turkey leftovers.
I like this idea. Think I might make it with corn tortillas and enchilada sauce. Thanks for the inspiration!
Does this travel well? I have to make a meal for a family and it would need to be reheated. How does it taste reheated?
Target sells really good whole wheat tortillas that could be used also.
It does look yummy! I agree with whomever said to add a can of drained black beans. I think I would also put in a can of corn rather than serving it on the side, and serve with a salad or fruit instead. I’m putting this on my menu for next week! Thanks!
Funny- I noticed the Pampered Chef products right away too! I will have to try this dish soon as well! Thanks for posting!

That looks so yummy! I’m going to try it. My picky preschoolers probably won’t eat any, but that means more for me!
Kristen Hamilton says
You could also make it with low fat cheese, whole wheat tortillas and ground turkey ( or skinless chicken) to go a little healthier without totally busting the budget. Thanks – I will definitely try this out!

I love it! I wish I would have seen this recipe earlier because I would have made that for dinner tonight. I will have to write this one down. Thanks!
This looks delicious! I love that it’s really easy and made with ingredients that are usually on-hand in my kitchen. Thanks for sharing!
WOW! This sounds seriously yummy! I think I’ll try it this week.
This reminds me of an authentic Mexican dish I love called Chillequeas. I will have to try it (veggie style) its sounds really, really good.
I’ve made this before and it is SO delicious. Oh my, make a double batch because everyone will want seconds.
this looks great. i think i’ll make this over the weekend. i will add a can of black beans to up the fiber content though 🙂
i’m going to try this for our milk allergy family, with omitting the cheese. but everything else is dairy free. thanks!
We make this every once in awhile, but we always use cheddar cheese soup, I’ve never made it with tomato.
It is good and cheap!
I made this tonight! Yum!
I have made this recipe before and it is a favorite. I would highly recommend it to anyone who hasn’t tried it.
I’m loving the Pampered Chef products used in the pictures! Way to make a deliciuos dinner even easier!
That looks delicious! What a wonderful site! Thank-you!
