    Delicious!! I purchased everything to make this casserole, but somehow the tortilla chips managed to magically get a rip and my chip loving family had to help them from a near certain staleness death. <br/><br/>To compensate I added 2 cans of whole kernel corn. This was great! Tasted like chili that had cooked for hours upon hours, with only 30 mins in the oven. Will most def make this again!! With the corn!

    YUMMY!!! So fast as sooooo easy! I love the way the tortilla chips soften and give texture to the meat mixture! Hubby requested that it be added to the dinner rotation and my 4 and 6 yr olds were ecstatic with the flavor! I made a change to the recipe only because of poor planning on my part. I didn't have a can of cream of mushroom (I KNOW, can you imagine???) so I went on a dig in my pantry and pulled out a can of creamed corn thinking it would help thicken the mixture like the soup would. I used an entire 15 oz can and then let it cook on the stove a little longer as the mixture seemed thin, then while baking, let it bake about 15 minutes longer. The corn added a nice texture and color to the dish. I also had about 1.5 lbs of meat and rather than leave a half pound in the fridge, I threw it all in. Because I had added extra meat, I had to put it in a larger dish. I used the next size up Pyrex dish, which, of course, necessitated extra cheese. Served with a lettuce salad on the side dressed with salsa rather than salad dressing and since I was out of sour cream, topped with french onion dip. Myabe next time I'll actually plan better and have the right ingredients on hand. :-)

    This was so a cinch to make and so tasty! I did alter recipe to what we had on hand. Instead of beans, we used green chili's and added taco seasoning for flavor. I think next time we will add corn, like another user posted. Thanks for sharing!!

    Wow! This was extremely fast and good ! ! ! After I mixing all the ingredients & before pouring over the tortillas, my niece & myself decided to taste! WOW! It was great "without" the tortillas! I usually use Williams Chili Seasoning & I believe I am going to use this mxiture instead of making my chili from sscratch. It''s faster and has an amazing goodness!

    Nice texture, and, as the recipe says, quite easy to prepare. I added several tabasco peppers just to insure more heat. An excellent casserole; great served with some garlic bread and a salad. Thanks for posting!
