    Mark H.'s Note:

    This is great for times when you don't want to cook, but still want a hot meal. My Dad has always made it, and over the years I have tweaked his recipe a bit. It is very easy to make, takes very little time, and the leftovers are great. It is a meal in itself, though I sometimes enjoy it with a couple of warm flour tortillas.

      I have made a recipe just like this for 25 years or so. The only difference is I use plain ol' chips, you know like Tostito's etc. It's almost like a Mexican Lasagne or something. I call mine Enchilida Casserole

      When I saw this recipe it made me think of a dish my mom used to make with leftover chili. I had leftover chili so used that instead of canned. Also, topped the dish with letttuce, tomato, and sour cream when it came out of the oven. Quick and easy.

      This has always been a favorite of mine. I'm a great fan of chili. Thanks for reminding me about it. For a simular dish (no chili), check out Mexican Chip Casserole #64441
