This was a huge hit! Since we (including the kids, ages 10 and 7) love things on the hot/spicy side, I added a few shakes of hot sauce. Also threw in a small can of sliced black olives. We also didn't have any tortillas on hand, so I substituted crushed tortilla chips for the layers. The recipe was very easy--my 10 year old was able to make most of it on his own. Everyone went back for seconds and can't wait to have it again!
