I make lunch once a week for a group of 20 homeless people at a local church. I make the food at home and deliver/serve it. I'm always looking for new recipies for a crowd, and am so glad to have found this one. It was a huge hit. Everyone raved, including the staff. I used a mild salsa not knowing whether everyone would enjoy a more pungent one, and there was hot sauce on hand for people to season to their own taste. I followed as directed and they LOVED it. Thank you so much for this submission.
After reading through the recipe and thinking about the ingredients, I thought "AHA!" this one is a keeper because it looks so adaptable. So, I followed the recipe with some changes: someone commented that their corn tortillas got soggy so I lightly sauteed room temperature corn tortillas on each side for 7-8 seconds in moderately hot vegetable oil and then blotted them well in paper towels - the oil became a barrier to leaking through. I used black beans by Bush instead of kidney beans and fresh salsa from my grocer's deli section. All in all it's a terrific recipe - so easy follow and so easy to change to your own tastes. I am definitely making this over and over again! Thank you Susan for sharing it!!!
This casserole turned out very mushy- I won't be making it again.
I added jalepenos and a little of the chicken broth after I boiled the chicken breasts. We had to do a homemade salsa because my friend has diverticulitis and cannot have seeds.
LOVED this inexpensive, easy recipe. I used pinto beans (although I would probably use black beans next time), a Mexican shredded cheese blend, and medium salsa. It was delicious. It tasted great leftover too, although the bottom layer of tortillas got a bit soggy. I will definitely be making it again, at the request of my fiance! He even bragged about it to his mom... score!
