"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."

"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!!"
