Like others I did do some tweaking to this basic recipe. I assumed upon reading it that the chips were meant to become a tamale like base so was surprised at the reviews that expressed disappointment that they were not crunchy. In fact, I made sure that my meat mixture had enough moisture to absorb into the chips. Changes I made included adding corn to meat mixture,extra green onions on top, using 1 cup mild salsa and 1 cup hot which gave it the right amount of heat for us. I also opted not to use the chili beans that have spices in them, but rather used a packet of taco seasoning and rinsed black beans. I used a smaller deeper dish and did two layers which made for a thinner sour cream base thus avoiding that weird curdled cooked sour cream issue that others mentioned in their reviews. The end results were awesome, and my fellow was very pleased. Will definetly go into my recipe rotation!
