    This was so cheesy & I loved the crunch that the tortilla chips gave to the dish. I will definitely make it again! My picky 8 year old even enjoyed it!

    I enjoyed it. My picky son didn't. But, he doesn't like anything. I didn't have black beans and used kidney beans. Yum!

    My store was out of nacho cheese soup so I use nacho cheese sauce from the deli and omitted to milk. Thanks for sharing!! It is very good and I plan to make it again!

    This recipe was unique and we really enjoyed it. I couldn't find nacho cheese soup, so I used cheddar cheese soup and added a tablespoon of taco seasoning.
