I discovered this recipe several years ago at a church function. The combination of flavors is tantalizing-this dish is a real crowd-pleaser! The kidney beans, chili beans and corn chips all represent the cooking of the West/Southwest region. This dish is great for your family, or for family gatherings.
My mother-in-law has been gone for 20 years, but her recipe is still in great demand at family gatherings and potluck suppers. Serve this lasagna with salad, bread and a light dessert...and you'll satisfy the heartiest appetite.
"I adjusted this favorite casserole for microwave use in the interest of speed and to save heating up the ovenwe live in the Southwest," explains Joyce Marten of Cottonwood, Arizona. "I've taken it to friends who have been in the midst of remodeling and always get a request for the recipe."
Tomatoes and green chilies give color and zip to this very cheesy egg bake. It makes a hearty breakfast or brunch entree - or you can enjoy a square topped with salsa for lunch or supper.

To stretch our grocery budget, we eat a lot of soups and pots o' beans. This satisfying Mexican corn bread always livens up the meal. Like many of my recipes, this one came from a church cookbook.
I serve this as a meatless main dish, but it also makes a nice side dish. It freezes and reheats well, so I’ll sometimes double the recipe. It has a colorful combination of carrots, corn, beans and tomatoes.
