I read the reviews with much anticipation. But now that I've made it, I don't know what all the fuss is about. I followed the recipe....even added a pulverized jalapeno pepper....but found this bland.<br/><br/>Sorry to say, i won't make this again.
loved it. I didn't have rotel, so used salsa. Was low on shredded cheese, so melted a small block of velveeta in with the soups and saved what grated cheese I had to sprinkle on top. Great family dish!
My husband loved this. He always eats whatever I cook, and thanks me for cooking it. He doesn't always tell me it was wonderful. He told me that at least 3 times tonight when I served this!
The only thing I did differently was to divide the chicken mixture and the cheese mixture into two layers, rather than three. I lined the pan with torn tortilla pieces, layered half the chicken mixture, then half the cheese. I then added another layer of torn tortilla pieces, followed by the other half the chicken mixture, then another layer of torn tortillas, topped with the remaining cheese.
