"I threw together this main dish when my husband unexpectedly invited his hunting buddies for dinner," recalls Karen Bruggman, Edmonds, Washington. "It was on the table by the time they'd unpacked their gear and washed up."

    This was just ok. It was very easy and quick to put together. Might make it again in a pinch.

    Those darn hubbies anyway-LOL.  I hope he didn't ask you to pull his finger afterward- and if he did, I hope you punched him instead- and if you pulled his finger, serves you right-HEEHEEHOHOHAHA! (I know, I'm onery- Da debil made me dood it.) 3 x 14+oz cans is close enough to that big can for the recipe to work in re "ingredients on hand." I was surprised how well that worked (altho DR will jump my *** when he finds out I ate that much salt).

    I used regular corn chips and topped with a dollop of sour cream. Was very good.
