Easy to make! I used turkey burger instead of shredded chicken, mashed pinto beans, in place of the re-fried beans, and added more cheese and rice then called for. Topped with lettuce, tomatoes, salsa, sour cream, and olives. Over all it tasted good, and even made a great version of a taco salad!

Super easy and tasty. Used "Mexician Rice" from Rice a Roni for some extra flavor. Preferred using it in a burrito than eating it plain. Overall, a hit with the fam.

This recipe was delicious! I used rotisserie chicken. I also mixed the can of refried beans with the cooked rice for the bottom layer (it makes it easier to spread). This was very simple, and full of flavor!

Quite tasty! I didn't make this ahead & freeze, but rather all in one day. I did add a can of black beans (drained) and about a cup of frozen corn (rinsed/thawed) into the chicken mixture before layering. One thing... the rice did stick to the bottom of my casserole dish so next time will oil spray first. Tasty comfort food! Can't wait to make it for a work Potluck. Think it will be eaten up quickly!

Easy to make and very yummy! Hubby suggested I add some kind of veggies next time, like chopped bell peppers.

I added a layer of cream cheese between the chicken and beans, just melt a bit and spread. So yummy! It did come out a little dry but just a spoon of salsa on top made it amazing. My kids liked it served with cheese tortilla chips.

Very good recipe - freezes well and my family really enjoyed it. I used instant rice because that's what I had and it worked well. I froze it after the rice and chicken layers and then thawed to add the beans etc. Turned out really good!

Very good recipe... and very versatile. I had to substitute black beans for the refried beans since that is what I had on hand. Also, I used 2/3 c uncooked rice and 4/3 c chicken broth for the cooked rice. Then I just cooked 40 min to be sure the rice was done. Turned out beautifully. Thanks for sharing.

I used all ingredients except guac and sour cream. I layered the ingredients into large tortilla shells, wrapped them and brushed them with butter. Then I baked it at 400 for 25 min. That made them the crunchy like fried chimichangas. It was a bit more bland than I expected, but that was a good thing for my kids! If you want it stronger I suggest adding another packet of taco seasoning and maybe cooking your rice in tomatoe sauce or something. Overall simple recipe and kid friendly. Another way to make it more of a meal is to place chips on all the plates and layer ingredients as desired onto chips. Kind of a neat layered nachos meal that everyone can personalize.
