Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! Wow! This was a big hit with my husband. I took a hint from another reviewer and used part of a rotisserie chicken I happened to pick up the day before. Didn't have cumin on hand but used chili powder which worked out great. Also, added some fresh elephant garlic and chopped onion to the bell pepper. Finally, I added extra cheese on top, including a little mozzarella.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This was very easy and really good. This was very easy and really good. I used an onion instead of the green pepper (seemed out of place in this dish). The tortillas became soggy after baking but it was OK. Next time I am going to try toasting the tortillas first and if that doesn't work, I'll try crushed corn taco shells or corn chips. Even so, great flavor and a definite keeper!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from From the reviews, it sounds like ex nay the tortillas. From the reviews, it sounds like ex nay the tortillas. Perhaps tortilla chips might be better? Also if you read the directions on how to cook, it calls for to add beans and tomatoes. But the list of ingredients does not mention tomatoes. It only say's salsa. Is that what it means? Other than that, sounds good I will have to try it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Freezes great! When I make this, I make 4 at once and freeze 3 of them in aluminum pans. They freeze great, and I have dinners available in the freezers. My whole family loves this casserole. I love that it's so easy and convenient.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very easy to make and also very good! Very easy to make and also very good! Doubled the recipe so used 1 green and 1 red pepper so it was colorful as well as delish! For the cream cheese, I used onion/chive cream cheese spread. Also added a couple of finely chopped jalapenos but that's 'cause we like a little spiciness.

I made this casserole and saved one-half of the chicken to make burritos tonight. Very low in calories, but tastes great. I love recipes like this!

Although this recipe does not present well aesthetically, the taste is creamy and delicious without being too rich so I gave it a four stars due to appearance. I used boneless skinless chicken tenderloin and shredded it after cooking instead of cubing, it was worth the effort.
