Rated 4 out of 5 by from Made this last night and it was a success. Made this last night and it was a success. BUT, there always is one, right? I made the following changes: 1. Substituted 1 can of Rotel Tomatoes instead of 1 tomato. 2. Added approx. 2-3 cups of cooked rice instead of tortillas. 3. Used 1/2 of 1 green pepper and 1/2 an onion. 4. Did not do layers, mixed it all together then poured into a 9x13 casserole dish. Added sliced sharp cheddar to top, then covered with foil. Baked for 15 minutes. Remove cover, then added crushed tortilla & frito chips (bottom of the bag leftovers)covering the melted cheese, then added additional shredded cheese over the tortilla chips. Bake for 10 minutes or until cheese and chips are golden! Bon Apetite!! Hope you enjoy this as much as my family and I did :) Pamela

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was delicious! This was delicious! I made a few changes based on what I had. I used about 2 lbs of chicken tenders instead of chicken breasts. I seasoned it with a little more then half of a tsp of cumin, with equal amounts of chili powder and montreal steak seasoning. I didn't have salsa so I chopped up half of a large onion and added that to the green pepper. I also used a can of diced tomatoes. I used flour torillas bc its what I had and it was SUPER DELICIOUS! We loved it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Altered recipe a little due to what I had on hand. Altered recipe a little due to what I had on hand. Cubed leftover chicken and let it marinate in a little lime juice and limeaid (premaid drink). I used corn tortillas, though after baking they were a little soggy. Will use flour next time. I also added corn to the skillet mixture. Filling, and tasty! I like this recipe as it uses ingredients I often have in the house. This would be great for a potluck or company because it is so simple to prepare.

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 Quite tasty with minimal effort. Quite tasty with minimal effort. Next time, I will not layer with tortillas. I was quite skeptical on the first run, in putting tortillas in the dish. I am not fond of soggy tortillas. The ideal serving would be to make without the tortillas and then fill tortillas with this cassorole..a quick chicken enchilada/burrito. I also use whole wheat tortillas.

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 4 out of 5 by from My husband was not crazy about this recipe, but I liked it...it was kind of like chicken enchiladas... My husband was not crazy about this recipe, but I liked it...it was kind of like chicken enchiladas with a twist. I made it for a get-together and my friends thought it was good. The second time I used yellow and green peppers, added a bit more cream cheese and some cumin to the meat while it was cooking.
