This is so simple and so delicious!! Perfect for a "chili" day ;-) I grilled my chicken breast with a dusting of fajita seasoning for a little extra flavor. SO GOOD! Will definitely be making this again soon! Thank you for posting.

This was ridiculously AMAZING for how simple it was to make! My mother and I simply used a pre cooked store bought chicken (discounted in the evening at most stores!) and chopped it up. Dumped everything into a large pot, and simmered for about a half hour! Used the crushed corn chips to thicken it up successfully, do not skip out on that step. SO flavorful, nice spicy kick without being too overbearing (I like things spicy, my mother generally does not). Definitely can see why this won a contest w/ Rachel! Muy bien, especial!!!!!!

I just tried this recipe this past week after seeing Rachael Ray's Top 10 of 2009 show. My DH and picky friends ate it up. I can't believe how easy it is to make either. I cooked it on low for 4 hours in my crockpot and waited till 30 min before serving to add the cheese. I'm so happy someone has already posted this on RecipeZaar!
