Great recipe Caryn. The sauce and corn chips create a taste similar to tamales. I made one slight alteration...I doubled the meat, which means I should have known to use a bigger pan. Oh well, live and learn. Still a great casserole that we will make again. Thanks for sharing.
This was excellent! I made it with half the sour cream on top. We even had it re-heated the next day as an open faced sandwich on toast with salsa on top. Thanks Caryn.
This is absolutely delicious. It is very kid friendly too at my house. We love it. Thanks so much for sharing. :)
