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

"I made half this recipe for 2 of us and it would have served 5. REALLY good! I used a can of rotel because i didn 't have canned chiles (not typical) and used more cheese than called for."

"I really Liked this. Only made one small addition and one change up. I added 1 cup of Bush's Cocina Latina Frijoles Cubanos drained not rinsed. I also used 2 cans of cream of chicken soup to change up the cream of mushroom. I like cream of mushroom but I dont like the grey color it gives some foods."

"I made this tonight and it was a really tasty casserole. I only used about 1/4 cup chicken stock to thin it a bit and I'm glad I did or it would have been way too runny."

"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."

"My kids (14 & 17 year old boys) & husband loved it! Made the following revisions: Sprayed 13x9 with Pam and layered w/6 flour tortillas. No need to cut, just placed them in the bottom going up the sides. To the mix took another reviewers suggestion w/2 cans cream of chicken, 1 can cream of mushroom, 1 cup sour cream, 1 can drained miled Rotel (in lieu of green chilis) and a little milk to desired consistency. Added about a tablespoon or two of my homemade taco mix (packaged would work too) to taste, season salt and dried minced onions since kids won't eat anything if they know there are onions. Layered it as instructed but on top after the cheese I sprinkled a snack bag of Doritos that had been crushed. DELISH! Everyone one loved it!"
