This is a good starter recipe for a young couple; easy to make and tastes great. I got it from a website for freezer recipes -- can't remember which one.

So much easier than Mom's! We use 2 cups colby jack and monterrey cheese and add it to the layers plus a whole cup sour cream in the mixture (we don't care about fat) and substitute green salsa for the picante. Oh, and some Cumin to give the chicken a smokey flavor. Canned Rotel tomatoes and canned chicken make it super easy. Add some chopped black olives on top and it's almost like Mom's.
