Tortilla Casserole

This simple recipe makes a delicious evening snack or a light lunch with a green salad. While making this recipe, I realized I didn’t have any tomato sauce. My workaround came out great so I am sharing the trick, as long as you have my substitutes in stock. Take a can o diced tomatoes and puree. Since I wanted mine a little chunky, I didn’t puree it completely. Add 2 tablespoons of ketchup to 1/2 cup of tomato puree and delicious tomato sauce is done. The ketchup thickens the consistency and also adds flavor.
