This delicious twist on a classic casserole is layered like lasagna, using gluten-free corn tortillas instead of noodles, and salsa instead of marinara sauce. Enjoy all your favorite south-of-the-border flavors by topping this delicious taco treat with diced tomatoes, shredded lettuce, black olives, and nonfat plain Greek yogurt (It tastes just like sour cream!).
