I saw a recipe/picture for this dish on For the Love of Cooking blog. Her pic makes the casserole look great, and I have it in my list of "to try" recipes. Is this the recipe that you use?

We're having one of those "concoction" casseroles tonight. It has ground meat, onions, mexi-corn, cream-of-mr soup, milk, Velveeta , and extra-spicy crushed Doritos. It has to be the ugliest casserole alive, but it makes my husband a happy camper.

Had a hunk of eye of the round, so I shaved it and made a gravy or I should say Au jus for it, got some soft rolls for sandwiches, sauted some mushrooms and will put some swiss on the rolls, melt it and make french dip for all of us. French fries, green salad and baked custard for dessert.

DH and I sat down to eat on our back patio about 7:30 this evening, with a temp of 81F, blue skies and an iguana calling to us from our mimosa tree in the side yard. He said I should take a picture of our dinner and share it with you because it was so pretty...he christened it Mexican Independence Tostadas because of the red, white and green (even though Independence Day is not until September 16). I made these tostadas with boneless, skinless chicken breasts that I dredged in my homemade chile powder and sauteed in olive oil. Put chicken chunks on the pre-made tostada (if you cannot buy them packaged, fry corn tortillas in a bit of oil until crisp). Added sliced manchego cheese and put under the broiler. Garnished with crema (sour cream), salsa verde and diced tomatoes. Served with sliced mangoes. Yummy.
