    My college roommate and I came up with this one years ago, and it is still a hit today. The family will love it, and it is great for left-overs the next day. Serve with some spanish rice or refried beans. YUMMY!

      d4h, this is a really easy and tasty casserole! I would caution folks about frying the tortilla pieces, it take just a second to go from "lightly browned and crisp" to "uh-oh!", lol. I used flour tortillas this time, but I think I would use unsalted corn tortilla chips next time. Yes, I will be making this again. It's easy, it's inexpensive, and it tastes good. I halved the recipe but added just a tinch more than half the chicken broth. Served it with refried beans, extra salsa, and blue corn tortilla chips. Leftovers are in the fridge for lunch tomorrow. Thanks for posting. :o)
