This casserole was delicious. I liked it with the rice, because it didn't require any additional tortillas or shells, keeping it a low carb dish. I also added guacamole and a little Tofutti sour cream to my serving. This was a big hit with my whole family.

Update: I've made this several times now. Most recently, I took it to a get-together at my in-laws, none of whom are vegan. It disappeared! I got several compliments and my sister-in-law requested the recipe.
