    Marz's Note:

    I got this recipe from Robin Miller's Quick Fix Meals. I have made this several times and my husband loves it. And it is so easy to make! I usually just buy Tyson's ready cooked chicken breast strips (two 6oz pkgs) pre-seasoned with southwestern spices. I sometimes use multi-grain flour tortillas, when I can find them in the store.

      I have been making a version of this for years (not giving star because I haven't tried this specific variation) and have a couple of suggestions:<br/><br/>- Use corn tortillas, not flour. Flour tortillas tend to become gummy, whereas corn remain relatively intact. <br/><br/>- Instead of salsa, there are several excellent canned enchilada sauces. I use the Hatch mild variety.<br/><br/>- I shred the chicken (with two forks) rather than slice it. It takes the flavor the sauce much easier when shredded.

      Very easy and quite tasty! I made this with ground beef and pinto beans instead of chicken, but followed the recipe otherwise. It worked out quite nicely and was super simple to put together. I'm sure I would like it with chicken as well. Thanks for posting!

      What a delicious dish, Marz !!! We had it for diner tonight and the whole family LOVED it ( specially my husband ) !!! It is very easy to prepare, I only changed it for one thing: I added 1 cup salsa to the recipe instead of 1/2. We also added some extra salsa on top of the portions on our plates. Thank you so much for the recipe, Marz ! I will be baking this again :o) !!!
