This family pleaser is definitely not your ordinary chicken casserole. I started making this years ago and still get requests for it.

This was really excellent!! I highly recommend NOT using flour tortillas.. unless you like the "gooey" taste at the end results. The corn tortillas were firm and full of corn flavor! Also, people should not rate a recipe BEFORE they cook and try it. I added a bit more comino. Next time, I'll add some minced bell pepper. Thanks for sharing!

This is a great recipe. I changed it a bit to make it more healthy. I replace one can of soup with boiled cauliflower & carrot (about half a large cauliflower and a few small carrots) that I then puree in a blender, along with milk and the other can of soup. My children don't even notice that the extra vegies are in there. I also tend to boil my chicken and then shred it. I just find that it's quicker that way. This recipe tastes great with a side of rice.

Great dish, I used chicken tenders instead of bone in chicken and shredded them and it turned out very good. Highly reccommend this dish!
