I love the mexican flavor of this simple casserole. I make it in the oven rather than the microwave. I bake at 350 for about 25 minutes and it turns out great! Read More

I made this with fresh cooked chicken breast and it was still horrid. I don't even want to imagine what it would have tasted like with canned chicken. I only gave it the second star for quickness. Read More

This recipe was very easy & would have been very fast if I had used precooked chicken. (I didn't want to use the canned stuff.) I also made some changes but only minor ones. I used cream of chicken soup (not everyone in the house likes mushrooms) omitted the chilies & used jalepeno montery jack cheese instead. I also threw in some medium cheddar cheese. We were amazed that this tasted so good! We will definitely make it again. Read More

This was okay but nothing special. I used fresh chicken real onion and long grain rice instead of the canned/dried/instant which I think improved the flavor but it was still bland and could have used some more seasonings. Read More

For a family to is'nt really excited about tuna this recipe was a big hit. My teens wanted to know in advance what was in it but I convinced them to taste first. The green chiles give a great pepper taste without extra heat. Thanks for being there when I needed a new approach to tuna. Read More

I thought that this recipe sounded so nice and quick and easy so I tried it and was so disappointed. It tastes awful and I used real chicken and real onion. I don't even know where to start to make this taste better so I won't Read More

I used this recipe with the albacore tuna.... it was great! The entire family loved it except my 2 year old.... not colorful enough? I made mine with regular rice and baked in the oven as my family likes a crunchy top. I was so flavorful! I even used low fat cheese and low fat mushroom soup! I am looking forward to "refrying" the leftovers and serving it as a side dish with Pork chops. This is Yummy!!!! My husband was skeptical and he loved it even had thirds! Read More

I made this pretty close to as it was written. The only changes I made were that I used chicken breast I'd boiled myself and cut up since I dislike canned meat and I baked it at 350 for 25 minutes rather than microwaved. It was okay. It turned out fine and we ate it and liked it well enough but it seemed to be missing something. My husband and I stirred in some salsa with ours and that helped a bit. I'll probably make this again but I'll add either some corn or black beans and something else for seasoning. I think a mixture of cheddar cheese and pepperjack cheese would be good. Overall a quick and basic recipe that just needs a little tweaking. Read More
