      This is delicious! I reduced the recipe down for two and used 1 chicken breast and a whole can of red kidney beans, as I'm not sure what black beans are. I also mixed the salsa in with the sour cream instead of serving it on the side and it was great. 30 minutes cooking time was perfect. Thanks, we really enjoyed this!

      This has become a family favorite. We all love it. The only changes I make is I cut back on the sour cream and throw the salsa in with the chicken mixture. Very yummy. Thanks for posting! Amy

      I have to say that this was great. My DH ate almost a 3rd of the casserol in one sitting. DD wouldn't eat it, but that is typical for a 3 yr old. I really enjoyed it. I made it the night before and reheated it the next day. It reheats well. Thanks for the great recipe, DH couldn't believe it;s low fat.
