  1. we loved this recipe! the few alterations we made were leaving out the cheese and using corn tortillas so the meal would be vegan and gf for our family. i made my own homemade hash browns, and reduced the amount of spice in my verde sauce for the kids’ tastes. definitely making this meal again!
