    Pierre Dance's Note:

    This one is from my 1972 Sunset Mexican cookbook. Everyone has their preconceptions. One which is quite common in many places of the world is that the Swiss are all dairy farmers, a la Heidi. So it's only natural for the Mexicans, who have far fewer dairies, to name this dish in honor of that far away and mystic land. Be that as it may, this is one incredible dish, a real diet buster!

      So quick, so easy, and so good. I'll definitely be making this again. I did make a few small changes. I used leftover smoked chicken, no-fat half and half (as suggested by another reviewer), and a blend of reduced-fat Mexican cheeses. After it came out of the oven, I topped it with some fresh chopped cilantro. Next time, I'll use 1 cup of light sour cream and 1 cup of the no-fat half and half. That should make the cream mixture a little thicker. My three sons, husband, and I all liked it, and there were no leftovers.

      This is an absolutely fantastic recipe! I found this recipe many years ago in a community cookbook, which I misplaced, and was pleased to find it here. There are never any leftovers. Try this one - you will love it! Thanks for posting! 10 stars!

      I would give this recipe more than 5 stars if I could. It was so easy to make and the ingredients were easy to by. Everyone loved this recipe, even my picky eaters. This will now be a once a month dinner. Thank you so much for posting, I really enjoyed this meal. The only thing I changed was I fried tortilla in frying pan with no oil instead of frying in oil. This worked just fine and everything came out wonderful.
