I tried this for potluck at church and it was a hit. IAfter trying it as the recipe calls for because of it being the first time making it, I will add a few ingredients the next time. I will add some sliced black olives to the layers and dollop the top with sour cream when I am ready to serve.

Top with cilantro if you are using. I made this dish the night before and baked it the next day and it turned out good.
