I can't remember where I got this recipe but the whole family loves it. It has great enchilada flavor but is not too spicy. The sour cream topping is a perfect compliment to the beef. One time I forgot to cover the dish when i baked it and it still turned out great.

- 1⁄2 cup chopped onion
- 1 (15 ounce) can pinto beans, drained and rinsed
- 1 (10 ounce) can enchilada sauce
- 1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, divided
- 3 1⁄2 cups corn chips, divided
- 1 cup sour cream

*Made for Australia/NZ Swap #82* Biggest problem I had was finding canned enchilada sauce ! Not at all what I expected ! Good flavors and nice little zip -- think I would try "hotter" version next time. Sour cream was pleasant addition. We had it for dinner with a salad, but would make a nice appetizer for a "grazing" party ! Thanks for posting, linguinelisa.
Well this was one football pool worth losing. Made for a nice filling dinner tonight. I used chili corn chips and low-fat sour cream. Very easy to throw together, and cooking time right on the money. Nicely flavored, and made for a great dinner. Made for your win in Football Pool.
