Mu husband absolutely loved this dish...he is a big mushroom fan. I thought it could use more flavor, so I topped it with salsa too.
Tortilla Casserole with Swiss Chard
Using slightly stale corn tortillas works best for this casserole. If yours are fresh, spread them out on a counter and leave uncovered for an hour or two. They should feel dry, but not hard or crisp.
