It doesn't get any easier than this folks! Throw everything in one pot and let it heat up - soooo yummy! Pretty healthy too unless you add sour cream, cheese, and salt on top like I do. :-) We usually double or triple my recipe b/c this is a favorite! The proportions are easy to multiply too.
This is also a great "base recipe" where you can add to it and make it your own. For instance my husband doesn't do well with green chilies so we omit them and add some lime juice and chili powder. Or you could put it in a pot pie. Stir in some cheese and make it a dip. Throw it in a crockpot for a party
