"Didn't think we would enjoy it but I was surprised they were yum-o and very simple to make... Enjoy!!!"

"Great recipe - BUT - I did add to it...When mixing cream cheese and chicken I also added a can of diced chilies and also a small can of black olives.. As for the chicken - I used the ready-cooked chicken (southwest flavored) strips ( the ones that come in a bag) and diced them - was fast easy and convenient. A nice quick and easy Mexican "fix" I also poured a little green enchilada sauce on top before adding cheese."

"I didn't think that I would like these because they seemed too simple, but they were very delicious and the whole family declared it a keeper! I like it because it is such an uncomplicated recipe. I will be making this again!!!"

"Very good. My husband thought it was too rich with the cream cheese, but I loved it. It was even better for leftovers. I definitely plan to make again just so I can take it for lunch all week."

"I substituted half of the cream cheese with cottage cheese that I creamed in the food processor."
