Really good! I used twice the chicken and more chilies. I didn’t have pork rinds so I just put more cheddar cheese on top and it made a real nice topping. I think next time I’ll use some sour cream in the chicken mixture or maybe in with the eggs mixture. And I did use heavy cream instead of milk to make it more keto friendly. This one’s a keeper!

Was very good. I used leftover chicken thighs with cutup bacon so was a bit greasy. Cut chili powder down a bit, still has a nice kick to it. Will make again. Read More

Perfect! I added 1 can of black beans with the chicken, and I didn't have pork rinds so used crushed up tortilla chips. Will make this again!! Read More

This was a big hit, even for people who "don't like casseroles". I would use a little less chili powder next time, as the flavor seemed really strong. Maybe a little more cumin to balance the flavors better? Great weeknight dish. Read More

Wow, loved it. Served on a bed of cabbage/coleslaw, with avocado slices and sour cream then drizzled cilantro lime sauce. Recipe could be doubled for large family or potluck dinner. Read More
