Game Day Tortilla Casserole

I’m a big fan of potlucks especially on game day.  Not only because I love getting together with friends but I love getting creative with a new plant based dish.  This is the PERFECT potluck recipe.  It is a crowd pleaser that holds up well while sitting out on the buffet table.  I also like making this dish on a Sunday for leftovers during the week.  I hope y’all enjoy.
