Absolutely, positively adore this meal.
It’s a plates licked clean and baking dish polished out kind of meal at our house.
You “could” freeze this after you have assembled it, but we recommend just freezing the filling and then assembling it the day you cook it.
(Assembling it on cook day will help keep the tortillas from getting soggy – blah!)
We hope you enjoy this as much as we do!
