We liked this. My husband said 5 stars. I added a little bit if water because I was scared it would be dry, after reading reviews. You would think that a can of diced tomatoes and jar of salsa would be enough but it wasn't. I also added sliced black olives. I put Doritos on half the dish and baked. Glad I did! I didn't like it like that. I added some more to my plate. Like it better crunchy. And some sour cream to top it. My daughter didn't like it but she is 8. Probably the salsa she didn't like.

Nice recipe that came together quickly. I used ground turkey and a mild salsa, as I can't handle spicy heat well. Oddly, I did not experience a dry casserole. Also, I did not do the second baking step. I just added the chips at the end when serving. :)

This has a really nice flavor and was easy to put together, although I found it to be a bit too dry also. Next time - more sauce or less noodles. Thanks.
