This was ok. Not our top Southwest/Tex Mex dinner, but would give it another try.

This wasn’t that great. Not a lot of flavor.

This was great! It won't be "soupy" or "runny" if you use Roma tomatoes, cut them in half crosswise and squeeze out the seeds before dicing.

This was easy to put together and very tasty. I would have liked a bit more heat, so I'd add some jalapenos to jazz it up a little. However, it's very good as is and I highly recommend it.

Surprisingly good! This was somewhat similar to a chicken enchillada bake that I make but I liked it way better. I love the diced tomatoes but will probably omit the cilantro next time. A quarter of a cup is an aweful lot for my taste.

Omnomnom! Yes, it's a little more runny than most casseroles. Doesn't matter. Still super easy. Still good. Throw some chips or tortillas out there with it and it'll be fine. My guys loved this. ADDITIONS/CHANGES: Added a few chopped jalape?os. Topped with black olives. ON THE TOP/SIDE: fine sliced cabbage with Tajin seasoning, lime juice and a little sugar and fresh avocado. NEXT TIME: will try drained mild Rotel and skip the jalape?os and a can of black beans, maybe corn. Thanks so much for posting!
