"This was super easy and very quick, plus we loved the end result! Neither my husband nor I like beans so I substituted shredded chicken and salsa in it's place then mixed the sour cream into that instead of a separate layer, used crushed tortillas since I had those in stock and topped it with cheddar and mozzarella cheeses and baked!"

"This recipe is terrific! First made it 5 years ago. Since then my husband is on a low fat diet. Consequently, I also use Nalley's vegetarian chili, kraft no fat shredded cheese, and baked reduced fat tortilla scoops. It is a hit with evveryone from my "carnivore" son to my 99 year old Mom-in-law with a fussy palette. Try'll love it!!"

"We had this for dinner last night and it was very tasty. I didn't have nacho tortilla chips so used corn chips that were leftover from another recipe. Served with Spanish Rice 8 on this site. I can't wait to make it with nacho tortilla chips."

"This is so good! and so easy for a weeknight dinner. I used 97% FF vegetarian chili, light sour cream, and added a shredded chicken breast. I assume Doritos are the nacho tortilla chips?"
