5-Ingredient Fix Contest Entry. I have a large family, (12 of us) and I buy the large bags of tortilla chips from a grocery warehouse. We always had a fourth of a bag left because by then they would be all crushed and the kids wouldn't eat them. One day my husband gave me a challenge to try to come up with some way to use the crushed chips, at the same time one of my grandsons decided he was going vegetarian. So I took it on as a double challenge and also decided I could only use what I had on hand. This is how the recipe was born. Ingredients can be adjusted to fit whatever size casserole dish you might want to use. Serve with a dollop of sour cream and a side of mexican rice (optional) I make it in a large alluminum tray (20 3/4"L x 12 13/16"W x 3 3/8"D) the qty of the ingredients are for this pan but can be adjusted for any size casserole pan.
