I used 2 chicken breasts - apprrox. 3 cups chicken cut-up, 1 can of whole kernel corn, 1/4 bag frozen pepper onion stir-fry, whole package of Taco seasoning and Mexican Blend cheese. Was out of the other rice so substituted 2 individual serving mirco wave cooked rice. This made about 50% more than recipes states.<br/>Flavor is excellent, Be sure nachos are not in big pieces. You could alter this to taste -it's a great base recipe.

made a lowfat version of this: using brown rice, lowfat low sodium soup, 2% fat mexican cheese blend, and less tortilla chips. It was pretty good- though I felt like a little more spice/ taco seasoning would have helped the flavor. I ended up putting nonfat sourcream mixed with taco powder on top for more flavor.

I had to hurry and get this in the oven before I went to pick up kids. The prep time only took me 5 mins and that is with grating the cheese. I also used a full packet of taco seasoning. I'm glad I did that way it had more flavor. I'll make this one again! Made for *Zaar Cookbook Tag 2009* game
