I forgot to top this with the fritos, and it was still a big hit! Quick and tasty way to use leftover rice.

The original recipe called for 1 lb. of ground beef, 1 can of tomato soup, 1 can of chopped chilies etc. It seem's like it was changed to make a larger casserole?? For just my husband and I, the original recipe was just enough. I'm sure anyone that wanted a larger one could have just doubled it. But we love this recipe. Just saying.

My husband and I liked it, but thoght it tasted a little sweet. If I make it again I will have to cut the recipe in half because it makes so much.

This recipe was easy as well as delicious. I did not change a thing except to use a larger rectanular casserole. My husband took leftovers to work but suggests the corn chips be added after nuking since they "sog out" if nuked. Posted Aug 12 2011 by Jackie C.
