Loved this! Made some changes because I couldn't remember what I needed to buy at the store to make this, but it all worked out. I used boneless skinless chicken breast rather than the tenders. I rinsed and drained the beans, even tho the recipe wasn't specific about whether I should. The tomatoes I didn't drain, as I didn't want to lose the flavor. I had a can of fire roasted mild green chilies that I layered over the chicken on top of the tomatoes. I also sprinkled my chicken with taco seasoning, then sprinkled the layers as well with the extra. Used a Mexi blend of cheese and forgot the pepper jack, but didn't miss it. Garnished this with black olives, fresh cilantro, and sour cream seasoned with the rest of the taco seasoning. Will make this again, but might precook the chicken and cut up to make an easier to eat casserole. Thanks for sharing a great recipe, even tho I didn't follow all of it. :-)

This was such a nice dish with wonderful flavor! I used 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts instead of the tenders, left off the pepper jack cheese for DH and didn't have any Doritos to put on top and it still turned out excellent! I had a can of black beans that I wasn't sure what to do with and this recipe was just the ticket. I even got someone who doesn't care for chicken to try this and he liked it too! I'll definitely be making this again! thank you SouthernGirl24, for a great chicken recipe!
