My family loves any type of Mexican food, so I'm always in search of something different. In this recipe, nachos become a main-dish casserole.—Janice Lyhane, Marysville, Kansas

"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."
