"I made this one night after a winter storm when I needed some nice warm casserole - I didn't have any frozen corn, but used a salsa with corn in it that worked perfectly. Delicious!!!"

"I made this for a Super Bowl party. It was super easy and everyone thought it was really good.

I left out the corn. Also, instead of putting two layers in a 13x9 pan, I used two 13x9 pans with a single layer in each and baked it for about 15 minutes."

"This was good! I bought the Restaurant Style chips and broke them in half bc they were very big. Definately need extra chips to dip with!"

"I haven't tried it yet but before I do I'd also like to know if you crush the chips or not. Thanks"

"Just a question on the tortilla chips, do you leave them whole or crushed up a bit?"
