Great recipe. I did add a can of black beans to the meat mixture. Would have preferred chili beans, but black beans was all I had. Loved the extra layer of taste with the beans.

love this as written but have made changes too. Will use chili cheese fritos instead of regular corn chips. Fritos/corn chips do not get soggy, other reviewers changed recipe and did tortilla chips and had soggy results.Also, I change layering so chips stay crisper, I place meat mixture in pan, then do half to three quarters of the enchilada sauce, then add my chips and cheese on top, and finally use remaining enchilada sauce as more of a garnish on top of chips and cheese. Sometimes I'll also add a drained can of black beans to beef up the protein a bit/have more leftovers.

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 winner...my 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.

I used tortilla chips and I was hoping that the chips would stay a little more crunchy. Maybe if the layers were spread out into a 9 x 13 it would have been more to my liking. I added a can of black beans to the meat mixture. The enchilada sauce gave it a nice kick.

This was super easy and super tasty! I layered mine and baked it in a 2 1/2 qt casserole and it was great! But next time I think I'll use 2 cans of enchilada sauce. The 1 can just wasn't enough for me.

This was easy and quick to make. The crunch of the chips added nice texture.
