Ratings & Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was delicious! This was delicious! I did change the recipe a little. I used canned chicken to save time and my husband didn't notice. I also used Rotel instead of the diced tomatoes. I ended up using way more cheese than they suggested. I did need to cook it longer for the cheese to be melted. I did notice that the inside tortillas weren't as cooked, but I think it was fine. I can't believe how many of the reviews substituted the black beans. They really make this dish and are so good for you! My husband is happy to take the leftovers to work and I will definitely make this one again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and affordable! Simple and affordable! I used one can of Rotel in place of the tomatoes and also added 10-15 minutes to the baking time. I made two of them because I wasn't sure if one would be enough for our family of 2 adults and 3 kids ages 8 and under. One was definitely enough! This is very filling. Eating leftovers today for lunch and it's still delicious the next day! I wonder how well this would freeze...anyone tried freezing it?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My husband loved the casserole. My husband loved the casserole. I used pinto beans instead of black beans and use regular cream cheese (could not find the cooking cream) Just addes more seasoning like chili powder to make up for it. I also added cilantro, salt, pepper and garlic. Was very easy to make and is even better the 2nd day when all of the flavors have blended together. Topped with Salsa, sour cream and avacados and wow! Great flavors!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My husband and I liked this recipe very much. My husband and I liked this recipe very much. When he says we should have this again, I know it is good. The tomatoes I bought were diced with green chili's and used red beans, my husband prefers, instead of black beans. I also served it with a medium salsa. I couldn't get the Sante Fe Blend anywhere in our area but used the garlic and added taco seasoning, cumin and chili powder to it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I made this recipe using canned chicken, which may have been some of the reduction in quality. I made this recipe using canned chicken, which may have been some of the reduction in quality. It kind of ended up mushy combining the canned tomatoes and cooking creme... just didn't really like the texture. I would say going the route of just cooking the creme and chicken and beans and making a wrap with that and some fresh tomatoes and cheese added at the end. Otherwise the moisture really just makes the tortillas soggy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We really liked this casserole! We really liked this casserole! This is a great mix of flavors and actually tasted better the 2nd night. I used corn tortillas instead of flour tortillas, and I think I might try using Ro-Tel tomatoes next time instead of the regular diced tomatoes to give it a little extra "kick." My husband and son really liked this recipe as well. I will definitely be making this one again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This recipe was awesome! This recipe was awesome! I made some substitutions though since my town is very small and doesn't sell much variety here. I boiled the chicken with onion, fresh garlic and cumin then instead of just tomatoes I used Rotel. I couldn't find the Santa Fe Cooking Creme so I just used the Original Cooking Creme. After everything was cooked I added black olives to the top of casserole.
