  1. Great recipe Caryn. The sauce and corn chips create a taste similar to tamales. I made one slight alteration...I doubled the meat, which means I should have known to use a bigger pan. Oh well, live and learn. Still a great casserole that we will make again. Thanks for sharing.
  2. This was excellent! I made it with half the sour cream on top. We even had it re-heated the next day as an open faced sandwich on toast with salsa on top. Thanks Caryn.
  3. This is absolutely delicious. It is very kid friendly too at my house. We love it. Thanks so much for sharing. :)
  4. We all agreed the taste was yummy - just a couple of hitches: it's a homely little dish - not too pretty on the plate. But, if you're hungry and want filling fare -- who cares about aesthetics? The cooking steps were a little awkward. I kept thinking there must be some way to simplify and mix all of it in the skillet. However, I followed the directions. It is certainly a kid-friendly dish (especially if you use the "mild" chili seasoning mix.) This would be excellent after a chilly day of skiing, when you come home cold and hungry!


I live in to Jacksonville, FL with my husband, 2 daughters (17 and 11), 4 cats, and 2 dogs. My favorite things to make are cookies/bars and pound cakes. I have had a great time cooking since discovering Recipezaar January 2002. This is a picture of my youngest cat, Lily. She is my sweet sweet little baby.
