This was pretty tasty, even though I found out by reading other reviews that I had made a mistake! I didn't top it off with tortillas, only the cheese, and didn't realize it was supposed to be covered. So, I baked it, uncovered, for 40 minutes and let it sit for 5 minutes, and I think it turned out pretty good! I think the fact that it turned out good and not soupy like others have mentioned, is because I didn't cover it in the first place! LOL. I like the addition of the cream of chicken soup/sour cream base. I also sauteed fresh chicken strips with a little olive oil, cumin, and chili powder since the recipe doesn't exactly say what to do with the chicken. I think I'll be making this again.


This was a great recipe. Kind of like Mexican lasagna. I made the following changes based upon the previous reviews: 1. cut chicken breasts up into bite size pieces, then saute in a little olive oil, with some cumin and chili pepper (yum, this was a surprise) 2. cooked casserole entire time uncovered 3. added half can black beans to chickent mixture-very pretty and liked the texture 4. substituted corn chips for middle layer of tortillas-not sure if this mattered. 5. went low fat on soup and sour cream. This was a great "comfort" food recipe!


Fantastic recipe!Super easy to make and it tastes great! It was a big hit with my family. I did make a few changes,I shredded my chicken after boiling it. I used 2 cups of salsa instead of 3 and added one can of black beans(drained) to the salsa. I also added the green chiles to the sour cream, soup and chicken mixture.
