"I made this for dinner the other night with a few changes added cheddar instead of velveeta ()I don't care for velveeta) also I added a can of diced chili peppers and some chopped green onions. My picky eaters asked for this again. Loved it"

"Great easy recipe. I used Cool Ranch Doritos instead of plain old corn chips. I also put them in a flour tortilla with homemade guacamole and sriracha sauce. The only thing I would do is to season the egg mixture as well with salt and pepper to make sure all of the layers are seasoned."

"I made this recipe with the following changes: I added one can of corn and 1/2 envelope of dry taco seasoning. Took it to a woman's luncheon and everyone liked and several asked for the recipe. The one thing I didn't like was when I reheated the small amount of leftovers, the texture wasn't the same. The tortilla chips softened too much. Otherwise, I thought it had great flavor and was quick and easy to put together."

"It seemed like it needed something else, it was chicken and sauce. The flavor was good, might have been good rolled up in a tortilla or with noodles or rice added to it to make it more like a casserole."
