“My husband tells me that these are a guy's type of sandwich. I love that! We serve them when we have friends come over to watch a game on TV. It's also great for a quick family dinner when you don't want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen.” —Dena Peterson, LaPorte, Texas

"My husband says I must make these again! I did omit the red pepper flakes and used canned chicken instead of fresh. It was really good!"

"Really good. When I make it again, I will make it as a dip and shred the chicken and eat it with a dark rye."

"We tried it, didn't care for it at all. It might be good without the green chile, but it was not something I would make again as it is."
