Add 1/2 cup Mexican cheese and finish layering with the remaining tortillas. Pour the fajita sauce over the tortillas.
  3. Cover with foil and bake for 20 minutes at 375 degrees. Remove casserole from oven, top with queso fresco cheese and bake for an additional 10 minutes covered. Remove from oven and allow to rest for 10 minutes before cutting. Garnish with desired toppings to serve.
