I LOVED LOVED LOVED LOVED it. This is the kind of food that makes me really happy... it is thick, flavorful, a little spicy, and so easy to make. I baked the tortillas just because I didn't have the patience to fry them in oil, and I served it heaped on a plate with a slice of cheddar cheese and an over-easy egg on top of the whole lot. My hubby gave it 4.5 stars, taking half a star away just because he wanted more spice... considering he hates corn tortillas like he hates the flu, the meal must be pretty good. For a morning or evening meant to be spent in sweats in front of the t.v, I couldn't ask for a better meal. Hint: shredding rotisserie chicken is probably the way to go... it is always moist and yummy :-)


This recipes was great! The only substitution I made was with a can of diced tomatoes with green chiles instead of the tomato sauce and it was delicious!


Great recipe for leftover baked chicken. Instead of using the blender i just dumped everything in one pot, added fresh cilantro, black olives and a can of rotel lime/cilantro tomatoes. chips and mexican blend cheese on top. the gang loved it.
