"This recipe was given to me by a friend and coworker. She knew that I would make it low fat as soon as I read it. My family has enjoyed it with a salad and fresh bread or rolls. This may be made ahead and placed in the refrigerator for 24 hours or in the freezer for 1 month."

The first time I made this according to recipe and my family of picky eaters loved it. But then I sprinkled southwest seasoning on chicken breast and cooked and cut into bite-sized pieces, added it to the mix and added extra cheese on top, and they devoured it.

Excellent, fast and easy. I added some salsa to make it a bit more saucy, chunked the cheese and used a bit of Pepper Jack too, since we like more cheese and spicy foods...awesome. I'll be sending this recipe to my son in college who needs some easy recipes...this is a DEFINITE keeper.

This was really good. Next time I'm only going to bake it for 30 minutes.
