Mexican Chicken Soups!

"I found this recipe online, and altho I did a search trying to find it again, I couldn't. It was on a ladys site, and she sure has a winner! this is absolutely delicious! Those who are sick and tired of Mexican chicken with two or more cans of soup will love this! I used those Tostitos, light tortilla chips, and crumbled them in the bottom and on top before adding the cheese."

  1. This was just okay for me. I omitted about half of the cheese and forgot to add the tomatoes until my last serving. The added tomato did enhance the recipe.
  2. Loved this easy to make recipe - it's definitely a keeper.
  3. My husband rates my cooking first time he gave me a 10... We both loved it...
  4. Right on! Great recipe... I agree... I like 'soupless' casseroles also. didn't change a thing.
