I also did not find the corn soup, but used creamed style corn instead, which seemed to work well. I also don't have the right sized pan so I used a 9X13. Would probably double the filling mixture for that sized pan. We topped with sour cream and some jalapeno's. Yummy!!!

This was a tasty casserole. I couldn't find the golden corn soup at the store so I used ranchero style pepperjack instead. Would have probably been better if I used the corn soup. Leftovers tasted better than when it was fresh.

This was sooooo good! I did a search looking for a recipe using corn tortillas, as we had an over abundance. This recipe was easy to make and even better on the second night!
