I deliberated long and hard about posting this recipe. I made this at a time when I was in serious need of comfort food and a Mexican Junk Food Fix. I will apologize ahead of time if I offend anyone with the rant this recipe takes. The rant was real. Not funny then, but it is funny now. P.S. The outcome was really yummy and I felt better after releasing that negative energy into my cooking. It really is not healthy....but if you are looking for a dose of fun here it is.

How To Make mexican junk food casserole

    DISCLAIMER: This is NOT a joke and it was yummy and I made it up on the spot. WARNING: There is NOTHING healthy about this dish! It will clog your arteries, pack on the pounds, it may even make you sick! The salt content alone is enough to make you retain water and raise your blood pressure.

    Disclaimer: Should be eaten during PMS, when you don't give a crap about calories and need real comfort food. Side Dishes: Pinto beans cooked with salt pork. Who cares if you stink up the house? It's YOUR house!

    Combine Picante sauce, milk, chili, soup, cheese, dips and chicken in a saucepan. Heat until it's mixed together nicely and the cheese is melted or you are feeling a little better. Smash a bunch of the tortilla chips in the bottom of a big pan (smashing things feels good today). Eat a few to make sure they are good. (Hint: might even want to dip one in that warm concoction on the stove.) Pour the rest of the bag of chips into the sauce mixture and mix together. Slice the tamales on top of the chips. Pour the whole thing over the tortilla chips and bake at 350 for about 35-40 minutes or until bubbly.
