By the time I was done, I went so off script from this recipe that I can't rate it in good conscience (but MyRecipes is forcing me to.) Some ideas for people who like the idea but wanted more flavor: different type of chili powder like ancho or chipotle; add salsa for some of the tomato sauce; add scallions to the top (this really brightened up the flavor). We didn't add red pepper but that could've been another easy way to add some texture and flavor. The recipe as we made it was good, not great. We put fritos only on top because we didn't want the leftovers to be mushy. We cut the tomato sauce amount drastically. I didn't have enough chili powder and had to use some chipotle chili powder and rounded it out with some cinnamon. Didn't even see I was supposed to put cheese in the middle. If I opted to make something like this again, I'd definitely have a layer of cheese in the middle and add some lime juice.
After reading the reviews these are the changes I made to the sauce: 1-15 oz can tomato sauce, 1-8 oz can tomato sauce, 1 can Rotel diced tomatoes, and I small can of diced green chilies. We liked it and I will make it again. Served it with sour cream and sliced avocado. Next time I might add some jalapenos.
Spent nearly $30 on this recipe at Wal-mart. Too much to spend on one dish for a family of four. No one liked it. It was a two bite wonder. We even tried to jazz it up with some Picante Sauce. Sorry - No go.
Ridiculous amount of tomato sauce! Use one 15 oz.can tomato sauce, 1 10 oz. can of Original Rotel w/chilies, 1 14 oz. can drained petite diced and fire-roasted tomatoes. Your casserole will be swimming in sauce if you use as much as they call for! I also added 1 can drained Niblet corn and 3 finely chopped serrano peppers. We like spicy!
I didn't use that much tomato sauce (1 can only) and less cilantro. definetly will make it again !
To much tomato sauce, no flavor, maybe Tomatoes with chilies. Im at a lose.
