I found this recipe in my Gooseberry Patch cookbook, and, judging by the ingredients, it sounded pretty tasty. There was no picture to go along with it, so I wasn't exactly sure what it looked like, but it turned out pretty good! Jesse LOVED it (as I imagine most kids would). The Frito's really add a tasty crisp to this, and I, of course, smothered mine in sour cream. It's easy to throw together, and is definitely a filling dinner. I happen to make this for just Jesse and I since Heath was working late, and I don't think I'll be doing that again. This makes kind of a lot (I'd say perfect for a family of 4 or 5 if there are young kids), so we had a LOT of leftovers. It heats up very well, and was just as good the next day. Glad I tried this, I'll absolutely be making it again. I think it's something Heath would really like.
