Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy Kid Friendly Dinner My son really liked this! It was so easy. I put in a can of tomatoes and chilies 14.5 oz and did not add the water that this recipe called for. I was hoping for a little more nutrition :) It turned out good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Interestingly good Wasn't too psyched for this one at first and even while assembling it I thought weird. But it turned out good. It wasn't too spicy like I thought it was going to be and the corn chips didn't get soggy like I thought they would either. I added a dollop of sour cream to mine. I almost wish it had more spice to it. It was very mild.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It was quick Although this was easy enough to put together, it's definitely not healthy! It's good for a quick meal at home, but it lacks the flavor that I have come to know and love!
