    I chose this recipe because I had some leftovers to use and happened to have all the ingredients on hand. It was really good, not just ho hum leftovers! Any or all of the toppings are great; I had some corn salsa and guacamole. Nice meal!

    Very easy and delicious. I had to alter mine a little bit. I mixed 2 cups of steamed rice, 2 cups of chicken seasoned with seasoning salt, an 8 oz can of tomato sauce, 1/2 pack taco seasoning, and maybe a 1/4 c mild salsa all together. I had no refried beans, so I mashed up a can of pinto beans with more taco seasoning, a little salsa, and some spoonfuls of sour cream to make the second layer. Topped with cheese, popped it in the oven, and it was delicious. Will make again!

    Family really enjoyed this one and, when you factor in the ease of preparation and quick prep, it's an easy 5 star recipe. I probably ended up doubling the cheese. While i did enjoy eating it with the the tortilla chips, i think it would rather eat it like a burrito, wrapped in a tortilla. Thanks for a great, go-to recipe that I will most definitely repeat!

    This was a hit in our house. I made this Saturday for the game and we ate it with tortilla chips. It was so good. I served lettuce, tomatoes, onions, bl. olives, avacados, sour cream and salsa on the side. We loved it, its a staple here, for sure. Thank you for this "fun" and delicious recipe. Perfect for the game.
