Great concept! I'm going to use kidney beans and make it meatless.

Was super easy!!!! and a different option for sunday dinner. What would make it better is to have Sour Cream, Maybe some avacados and similar type items in there. Also what I did is I put some crushed tortilla chips, on the bottom as a bottom layer and then layered as directed in the recipie. I also added olives as well. Parents are enjoying it now and hubby and I will later.

This was such an easy weeknight meal. The family loved it. I used half cheddar cheese and half Mexican blend as that's what I had. Other than that I stuck to the recipe. The Chili Powder gave it a little kick. We all thought it was yummy! Thank you for sharing I know I will definitely make this again!

I made the recipe without changes and thought it was delicious. Since there is only two of us I knew I would need to save some for leftovers so I only put the lettuce and tomato when I served each portion.

I used 1/4 cup sour cream instead of all the may to cut down on the fat...seeing as I didn't have any chips. I added 1/2cup instant rice, a can of black beans and let it sit on the stove for about 10 min. When I topped it with cheese I also sliced some jalapenos and put them on half, the kids find it too spicy with them;) Then I served them on Cheddar Corn Biscuits(also a recipe from TOH) they are fantastic and the kids are asking for 2nds!

This was delicious! I made a mistake and cut the lettuce instead of shredding it. I also should have chopped the tomatoes smaller. It was still good though. My husband suggested I make this often. Thanks for the good recipe.

This is so easy and delicious! I found the chilli pepper just fine. I used Mexican cheese, not cream cheese, very yummy. My chips were not soggy.....I will put this on my favorite recipes!!

Very easy to make for a busy night. I normally follow the recipe as written the first time and then tweek it. . . Well I didn't have cream cheese. I browned my meat and added a packet of low sodium taco seasoning and the water it called for. Since I didn't have the cream cheese I used a whole jar of 12 oz salsa, a can of black beans (rinsed), freshly chopped jalapeno and tomatoes, and some corn. I layered it as directed though I would be tempted to put a layer of chips on the bottom. I did cover it while baking except for the last 5 minutes or so. I was concerned that it would be dry since my meat mixture wasn't soupy. Very good - every bit gotten eaten up by my college age children.
