    My mother has been making these for at least 20 years, but simpler, and we have always called them Mexican Stack Ups.

    I will definitely try this recipe. It looks better. MINUS those mushrooms. Mushrooms are not usually in Mexican food are they?

    I just made it for my family; doubled the recipe. Everyone liked it. I’m not a mushroom fan, so I didn’t like those too much. I added some taco sauce on mine. It was also very filling.
