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.

Very easy recipe to put together. I used salsa vs picante sauce, not sure of the difference, so I used what I had. The taste was great. The only reason I am giving it a 3/5 is bc the family had mixed reviews. "It tastes good, not great." "It tastes fine, Mom, but don't make it again" and I thought it was great. Like a previous poster suggested, I mixed everything together then put it together after "marinating" for a couple hours.

One of my family's favourites!! I don't know where your recipe comes from, but mine is from a tiny little coil-bound Campbell's Soup recipe book. Make sure you use corn tortillas for the best flavour!!
