We loved this recipe..I made it for my boyfriend. He wanted it again the following weekend! I left out the green chiles since the tomatoes had chiles. I also omitted the chicken broth. I was not sure if cheese spread was cream cheese? I used Mexican shredded cheese...it was great!!

This was delicious!! I didn't have bread crumbs, I think it would have made a big difference. I omitted the pimentos, not my favorite. I added some crushed red pepper to the cheese mixture for a little punch. Also I should have finely chopped my pecans. I skipped the pan frying and just baked it. All in all, my boyfriend and I loved it!

This was such an easy recipe, I might try adding sour cream, and fresh garlic next time. It was a little bland. But overall we liked it, we served it over rice.

This was a nice casserole recipe, I used too much sour cream. Next time I would use a little more spice or flavor on the chicken. I will make it again.

This was a descent recipe. I had to increase the amount of macaroni, It did not seem like enough. I cut the cheese in half and used french fried onions instead of croutons.

This was a great recipe, I followed some of the reviewers tips. Including marinating the meat in red wine, adding garlic, worstershire, medium yellow onion, I used fresh mushrooms, and added cream cheese. It still could have had some more flavor. Next time I will add some more spice to the meat.

This was so yummy, I made it twice and tweaked it to my taste. I omitted the beans, green peppers and green chiles. I'm not a fan. I also added an extra taco packet and can of the nacho cheese soup to the ground beef. 15 minutes before the time was up I sprinkled a shredded Mexican cheese blend on top, and continued to bake. Also we ate it rolled in flour tortillas with sour cream. Soooo good.

This was a big hit at our superbowl party! I omitted the milk. Next time I will maybe use half the amount required, since it was a little thick.

This was delicious, lots of work. I used baby bellas instead of portabellas. The store I shop at only had huge bottles of burgundy, so I used a red wine I had on hand. The only thing was my sauce was a little runny. Which is strange since I added more cheese then what the recipe called for, I did use the cornstarch. Maybe I will increase the amount next time. It tasted great the next day as leftovers, I served mashed potatoes and green beans.

This is a great recipe & really easy and fast to make. I followed the suggestions...such as..used a ziploc bag to coat chicken, tripled mushrooms, double sauce, added chicken broth and garlic. I served this over long grain rice. Big hit with the boyfriend!
