This satisfying casserole relies on convenient packaged ingredients to create an entree with savory Southwestern flair. There's nothing tricky about the preparation, and I have time to set the table while it's in the oven. —Doris Heath Franklin, North Carolina

"My family loved this when I made it one night for supper! I added mushrooms to the meat and we topped it with sour cream, black olives and salsa! It was great!"

"It was pretty good - however for Jimmy I had to add a can of refried beans? In that case I might add another can of enchilada sauce. Sometime I would like make it just the way the recipe said to!"

"Was served a similar dish at a repast asked for the recipe couldn't get it. So I put the ingredients in the search box and "bingo" I came up with a husband has cancer and he didn't have any problem keeping it down! It will most definitely be a mainstay in our house."

"I read the reviews stating the chips ended up soggy so I didn't layer the ingredients as the directions say. I just combined everything and sprinkled the cheese on top and then crushed tortilla chips. The taste was GREAT but the texture not so much. I think I'll try this recipe again but use the meat mixture in flour tortillas, then pour on the enchilada sauce, cheese, and crushed tortillas."

"I used mild enchilada sauce and 6 oz of cheese. It was still too spicy for all my guests. You could cook less time to have the chips crispy but the sauce wouldn't be warm, or cook longer and have warm sauce but soft chips."
