This was nice - somewhat like a taco salad. I used less cheddar only about 1/4 cup of sliced olives and a chopped green onion instead of the chives. The tortillas in the middle were a bit soggy - next time I will not layer as in the recipe but mix the chicken and soup/tomatoes top with tortillas then with cheese. Read More

I mexicanized this recipe a bit. Instead of cheddar cheese I used one brick of mild cheddar one brick of hot pepper cheese and a bag of kroger shredded pepper jack cheese. Also instead of the tomatoes I used 1/2 jar of mild salsa and added a couple tablespoons of diced green chilies on top of that. With using the salsa you do NOT need to use the chicken broth at all. Also I used a 16 oz package of the corn tortilla's - gave it a great flavor. Family absolutely LOVED it and my son ate the leftovers for breakfast this morning. I like a lot of cheese and so does my family. The recipe's amount would not do for us. Read More

I'd never heard of this casserole but thought I would give it a shot. Very yummy but you need to add more crushed chips on top each time you have it for leftovers for extra oomph:o) Read More

This turned out easy and good although I think adding a little onion in it would help. Thanks for the post. Read More
