Wonderful, simple and easy recipe! Tortillas were almost burned by 8 mins, so keep an eye on them! Didn't have any leftovers after making this! :) Would recommend!

Good flavor ! Had no coriander but don't think we missed anything. Used cubed chicken breasts, cherry tomatoes and a small can of tomato sauce to replace the canned tomatoes. Nice sauce so will definitely make this again.

Delicious! I added an extra 1/2 t of salt cuz this was very limy! I love lime, but it was a little over powering till I added the extra salt. I tried it with and without the sour cream and preferred it without. I also used pre packaged tortilla strips that you use for salads. I also added some hot sauce to my portion to give it a little more kick. My husband doesn't like spicy foods so this will be perfect for him.
