This is a great Mexican casserole. Very easy to make. I did add jalepeno peppers to add a little spice. This will be one of our favorite dishes. Thank you Katew!

Excellent and quick dinner recipe -- and very moorish. I have a great non-stick pan, so didn't need to use the oil to cook the chicken. Didn't have kidney beans, so spread a tin of refried beans on the base of the casserole, then added all the remaining ingredients (used a medium-heat salsa) in the order specified. The flavours are beautiful and it is just so doggone easy to make. It's versatile, too. I think it would be great with sauted onion and bell pepper, and chopped olives. Served with dollops of sour cream. Yummo!
