"I haven't made this yet, but am looking forward to trying it for my next get together. Several of my friends are vegetarians though, so I'm going to try without the chicken. Hope it is not dry?"

"Just had this last night-amazing! It has a consistancy of cheese cake-definately needs to have salsa on the side and the toppings to take away from the dryness. Sooo good!"
