This comforting Texas casserole is loaded with condensed soup and cheese sauce, not to mention a Frito topping. After nixing the canned soup, we cut fat and calories by replacing the heavy cream and most of the cheese with a combination of low-fat cream cheese and a flour-thickened broth. Our own seasoned corn tortillas make for a crunchy, flavorful topping without turning to a bag of corn chips. Tomatoes, chiles, onions, and fresh cilantro round out this lighter but just as comforting take on the classic.
