Sharron Boerum Recipe

By Sharron Boerum slboerum

...just came up with this and made it last night, after looking for a recipe for enchilada casserole using corn or tortilla chips...normally i make it with just "cheese", but my daughter had expressed a desire for some meat, so i opted for an EZ-OUT with fritos and tamales...lol. =^.~=

    ...lol...you could also leave them out or use hamburger, i think, and they would be fine...but just in case, XLNT brand tamales are found near the refridgerated pasta in my store (also near cheese and lunchmeat)...hope this helps! :)
