Mother frequently made this comforting casserole when I was growing up. Our family would scrape the pan clean. Chicken, cheese and zippy green chilies are a mouthwatering mix.—Jerri Moror, Rio Rancho, New Mexico

"This recipe was definitely a flop. I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out soupy and bland. Super disappointing."

"This is one of my go-to recipes when I need to make dinner in a,short amount time. I use flour tortillas instead of the corn tortillas. I also add a cup of corn to make it a one dish meal.I set out any toppings I have on hand- sour cream, pickled jalapenos, etc & serve with a big salad."

"Enjoyed the recipe but would add in lieu of green chiles chopped jalapenos to spice it up even more."
