Very good as is, but next time I will add black beans. I cooked this in a glass 8x8 dish, but it bubbled over, so of course i will be using a different casserole dish next time as well, but an o...

Only used 1 can of cream/chicken. I think I'll use less than 10 tortillas next time and less cheese (a little overwhelming). Made it with the rice, but it doesn't need the rice; it's good by its...
