    SGpratt's Note:

    I found this recipe in one of those Pillsbury cookbooks you can buy at the supermarket checkout stand more than 10 years ago. I'm consolidating all the recipes I liked from those cookbooks here and this one is super easy and delicious. I've made some revisions from the original to reflect my family's taste. Comments are welcome! UPDATE: I've also used pineapple salsa instead of traditional and it added a sweeter taste -- definitely worth a try!

      I added onions and topped with guacamole. This was good. Thanks for the recipe.

      Loved how easy this dish is! I didn't add the cheese into the mix since we are trying to eat lighter. I just added a little on the top after dishing up. We ate it with the flour tortillas - good. Then my husband ate ALL the rest the next day for lunch. He loves it - you would have thought I had put steak in there as much as he raved about it. I am doing this one again! (and again since it is so easy!) Thanks SGpratt!

      WOW!! This recipe is amazing! I accidentally bought a can of cream corn instead of regular, but it still tasted great! I think next time I might boild and shred the chicken and make it into a kind of soup instead. This is a recipe I will use over and over again!
