Recently made Quesadillas for the first time so this sounded really good. After I took this out of the oven I added to the top 1/2 sliced green bell pepper,1 chilli, one sliced tomato, a 1/2 cup sliced black olives and then put the sour cream on top. It was divine. Thanks for posting =)

Great way to use up leftover roast beef, also. I will definitely make this again with other leftovers. By the way - the fried tortillas are very tasty just on their own, or dipped in salsa!

Really yummy! I added scallions on top and served with sour cream. This one is a keeper! I skipped cutting the tortillas into strips and frying them in oil. The first time I made it I did. The second time I made it I just sprayed PAM in the frying pan and lightly browned each tortilla for about 1 minute on each side. Then tore 2 of them into pieces and overlapped them to cover the bottom of the casserole dish. Then I put on the chicken and salsa mixture and then two more torn tortillas then sprinkled on the cheese. The pieces I tore were large - about 3 or 4 inches. So it turned out to be a lot easier doing it that way and less fat by not cooking the strips in oil with almost no difference in taste. Overall a great recipe. Freezes well too :)

I wasn't able to eat this myself because of my diet, but my kids adore Mexican food, so I made it for them. They absolutely loved it and made sure that I printed it for my recipe book.

My family enjoyed this meal. It was easy, I fried the tortilla strips in cooking spray...mkae it alittle better......I only used 3 tortilla 'cuz I had huge ones and that was plenty. I will make this again, but tweek-it to fit my family's taste more. Note: The tortilla strips on the bottom didnt stay crisp, some got soggy...do soemthing different to fix this??

This was a delicious way to use up leftover chicken - kind of a Mexican lasagna! I like to follow a recipe exactly - the first time at least - and this was no exception. I too found frying the strips tedious & would adapt Squeaky104's method next time. I would also top with a Cheddar/Monterey Jack combo. Thanx for another good one Mr. Miller!
