Recipe by Kathy
"A sure crowd pleaser, this recipe uses nacho cheese tortilla chips, tomatoes with green chile peppers and cream of mushroom soup. And for the finicky eater, you can use cream of celery soup instead. Serve with sour cream, or the toppings of your choice."

I have been cooking this recipe for the past 7 years, instead of using diced tomatoes my family adds 1/2 to 1 jar of salsa and also 1 can of ranch style beans undrained, its is soooo good. We like to use Doritos just the regular bag, and we layer them at the bottom, I dont put too many because they tend to get soft, and I like them crunchy. Sometimes instead of using a fork we use the doritos and eat it like its a dip. So its a great meal or snack.
This was just okay. I don't think the cream of mushroom soup really 'fit' with the other ingredients, maybe condensed nacho cheese soup would be better? I added taco seasoning to the meat and used shredded cheese instead. Mine was kinda runny, probably should have drained the tomatoes for a while before adding them in. Not bad at all, but probably won't make again. Thanks :)
FOUR STARS with slight modifications!
I added taco seasoning to the beef before miking with soup and tomatoes. I then layered the crushed chips, 1/2 of beef mixture, black beans, 1/2 shredded cheese, beef mixture, crushed chips and remainder of cheese. Sort of like a nacho lasagna. After baking, I topped with shredded lettuce and sliced olives. It was a BIG HIT!
As I was making this again tonight I realized that I failed to mention in the review I left a few days ago that I also added chopped yellow onion, onion powder and garlic powder to the ground beef as it was browning. Not sure if this made a difference but it was definitely good this way! Spraying the casserole dish with cooking spray made for easy clean up, too.
this is a very good recipe, but i would get rid off the processed cheese slices and put shredded mexican blend cheese, also if you don't want it very bland, add some chili powder
I rated this 4 stars because I made some changes to make it worth 5 stars. First, I crunched the chips some b/4 putting in pan. Second, I used cream of celery soup instead of cream of mushroom. Third, I added approx 3/4 cup of homemade salsa (mild) to beef mixture. Fourth, I used shreaded cheddar cheese instead of cheese slices. Very good and oh so easy to prepare. My husband thought it was grand!! Will make again.
With a couple of minor changes and additions, this turned out to be really great. First of all, while I was browning my ground turkey, I placed the tortilla chips in the oven to brown and crisp them up. To my meat mixture I added onion and garlic powders, chile powder and some cumin. I don't do processed anything, so I used grated Vermont Cheddar instead. It was almost like having nachos but a lot easier. We all loved this Kathy and my mexican food lovers thank you!
We loved this recipe. I did make a minor change by using taco seasoning in place of the diced tomatoes ~ (hubbie isn't a big fan of them). the kids gobbled this up and I was told that this was a "Keeper"
