  1. Pretty tasty. I liked it, dd said it was ok but dh loved it. I dumped in almost a whole bag of doritos before I read the last comment that you didn't need that many. Next time I would use about 1/2 bag of chips. I added finely chopped onion, red pepper and roasted green chilis and subbed 2 boiled chopped chicken breasts.

<p>I am a mother of 17yr-15yr-12yr old children. I work 3 days a week outside of the home as a pharmacist. Dinner is always a sore subject for me, because there is never time to make it, and the kids don't eat it anyway. My goal this year is to just forget the kids and make what I think my husband and I want, and then they'll have to try new foods out of desperation! <br />I've noticed that I tend to give 4 stars as my top score when reviewing a recipe. Am I waiting for that once in a lifetime, mind altering taste? Or am I just too picky? Oh well.....</p>
