Baked Nachos

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.

    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!

    It is great! I left the chips whole. Have extra chips on hand to make better.

    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?
