"The group I served this to loved it. If you have a problem with calories, use reduced fat cheese, light mayo and light sour cream.They work fine. Or just don't make the recipe. I mean, why make it, then act all incredulous about the caloric content? This isn't a health food site after all. More like an old fashioned recipe swap."

"This was good and definitely a crowd pleaser. I used crushed nacho tortilla chips instead of potato chips, doubled the green chili, and used less almonds. I think next time I'll throw in some of the crushed tortilla chips in place of the almonds."
