As a Multiple Sclerosis patient, it has become necessary for me to reinvent myself. I have ... and continue to ... refuse to lie down and die, or in this case, follow the normally prescribed drugs and treatments that do nothing to defeat my disease. I am not only surviving by pursuing alternatives, I am thriving. I do the things specialists told me I would never be able to do. I walk and hope to one day even run regularly. I retain my cognitive and creative abilities for the pleasure of my readers. Although you may never see me on my daily walk, you are welcome to read my novel(s) and in doing so, come to ask yourself, "How can the 'out of the box' protocol she has followed, help my loved one with an autoimmune disease like Multiple Sclerosis?"


1 can Hormel Tamales (I like this brand for the sauce.)
1 can chili
1 can corn
1 can black olives
2 cups mild cheddar cheese (grated)
tortilla chips

Cut tamales into bite size rounds, drain corn, drain and cut olives into quarters. Mix with chili in mixing bowl and add 2/3 of the grated cheese. Spoon into casserole dish. Top with crushed chips and the rest of the cheese. For a party presentation, line casserole with chips before the toppings go on. Bake in 350 oven for 30 minutes or until cheese is lightly browned. If made and frozen before baking, add 20 minutes to baking time.
This is a favorite at our house. This isn't enough for our family and one guest, therefore we double the recipe and bake in a 9 x 13 pan.
