Reviews for Chicken Tortilla Casserole
"Made this for dinner tonight. Very good flavor. I left out the celery because I am not a fan of it. I will fix it with tortilla chips instead of the flour tortilla shells next time the flour tortilla get mushy. My 15 yr old daughter 6 out of 10 primarily because of the tortilla shells."
"This is a good recipe which my family and I like."
"Tried this today made several additions #1 I added a pkg of Taco Seasoning, 1/2 Cup Frozen Corn, 1 Can Black Beans Rinsed, I used Tortilla Chips instead of Flour Tortillas served it with extra Green Chile's and Sour Cream it was excellent!!"
"As a "not-so-healthy" splurge meal, I was a bit disappointed as this dish wasn't super impressive. Good for one meal, but not a "keeper" recipe."
"I am a young wife and mother, and I'm always looking for different recipes to try. I came across this one today and tried it. My family absolutely loved it!! I sent a picture to my mom and she wants the recipe!! I altered a little bit though. I didn't use celery; I used more chicken broth and more cheese; I didn't use chiles; and I didn't quite measure anything... I just kept adding stuff until I though it looked right... Thank you!!"
"My Brooklyn apartment is generally a vegetarian household, but, given the February dreariness and lack of sunlight, I just craved this casserole dish that frequented school functions when I was growing up in Illinois. I replaced the flour tortillas with some local corn tortillas, left out the celery and added cilantro and finely-minced stems, added a bit of cumin and Mexican oregano and chopped smoked black olives, and used a store-bought salsa verde (half Frontera and half Brooklyn Salsa Company) to top and it was amazing. This is an excellent, solid, fool-proof recipe to play around with to your liking, and I can't thank the submitter enough for sharing it. :)"
"Fast and easy. I halved the recipe and used tortilla chips."
"Delicious. I added a can of black beans. Will make again."
"This was so easy and delicious. I made it for my daughter and son-in-law, and they loved it! Even my 15 month old grandson couldn't get enough. I did add a little more chicken and cheese. So yummy!"
"My family LOVES the recipee and it warms up great for lunches at work the next day!"
