  • “I halved the recipe, but still had to use more than the amount of oil called for b/c the tortillas soaked it up (I didn’t fry them for long either) – so you might want to check that oil amount. I don’t think it’s enough for 12 tortillas. Also, I couldn’t really tell that the flour did any thickening for my sauce; I’ll omit it next time. This has a good flavor & is very filling. I prepared as directed, putting my two “stacks” in a 9×13 pan and baking at 350* for about 10 min. I think this also would be good with chicken layered in.”
