My adult son and daughter and I will love this Mexican Comfort Casserole. I can imagine the flavors and aroma of this Mexican food. I can imagine the smell of cumin. So yummy.

Mexican food is always great and this is a nice family recipe. I used beef stock instead of chicken soup and added a little fresh chili and garlic. Oh and because we were having ours with tacos I didn't use the Dorito chips either. I think I would make it a little 'hotter' next time but we all enjoyed it and all had second helpings.

Is this not some sort of oxy-moron? Isn't all Mexican food comfort food? Every dish that I have ever had is so filling and satisfying. I love Mexican cuisine.

This recipe is reminiscent of a lasagna as it is prepared in layers. Sounds delicious.

Hmmmmm, I don't know that I'd consider this a casserole...maybe more of a chunky Tex-Mex kinda dip, but to make it more casserole like I'd take your suggestion of layering the chips and using the black beans instead of the kidney Edmund. Then if you mixed the ground beef with the chicken soup chili mixture that might help make it more lasagna/casserole like as well. Afterward just top off with some Queso Fresco, cilantro and sliced black olives...yum!

This Mexican Comfort Casserole is not only full of flavor, but it is fun to eat. Like a "de-constructed taco. I questioned the cream of chicken soup, but surprisingly it really works. This casserole is full of lots of flavor and fun, and is so easy to prepare, you really owe it to yourself to give it a try. You won't regret it.

This recipe is a great casserole dish to serve on weeknights. We love casseroles and any dish that resembles nachos, tacos, enchiladas, or burritos. I was surprised how well the cream of chicken soup fit into the recipe. My son loved the Doritos (he thinks they are a food group)!

This looks like a really fun and tasty dish! It seems like a really chill dish too, for when you want to lounge around and enjoy your evening comfortably.

This is really interesting. It's like a combination of a plate of nachos and a casserole. It looks yummy and I think I'll give it a try. It'd be great for a picnic or watching a game on TV. I think I might use two different flavors of chips on the separate layers, as well as substituting black beans for the kidney beans. The cream of chicken soup is an interesting touch and I'll be interested in seeing what it brings to this dish. Thanks to Lynn K for the garlic suggestion.

I LOVE this kind of meal although Frine, my wonderful Mexican friend, would roll her eyes about it being called Mexican, lol. That aside, it was tasty and filling and I would definitely make it again. I replaced the cream of chicken soup with a tin of chakalaka (an African relish in degrees of hotness) to add some kick and the man of the house added chopped garlic. It is quick and easy to prepare and a very nice family meal.
