My family loves any foods with a southwestern kick, so this recipe gets a big thumbs-up from them. I have substituted fresh corn tortillas for the chips by cutting the tortillas into strips and sauteing them with pepper and onion. It makes for a nice change. —Joan Hallford, North Richland Hills, Texas
