Excellent! Not too spicy, so 6 year old loved it. Used flour tortillas because didn't have corn tortillas on hand. Tore then into pieces per prior reviews.

i absolutely love this recipe. Ive made several versions to accomodate family members with allergies, and i haven't found one that i didn't like.!!!

Family loves this recipe. I really like the fact that it is so versatile. I've made it several times and tried some of the suggestions of reviewers, as well as creating my own versions. I prefer fresh tomatoes to canned, but drained canned diced tomatoes with chili's is great when in a hurry.Great recipe.

My husband turned his nose up while I was preparing it but ate a second helping after it was made so I would say its a hit!

This dish is not only easy to prepare but delicious as well. Both my husband and I loved it and we will be having it again and again. I highly recommend this recipe as a volunteer field editor for Taste of Home.
