    Great idea for leftover chicken and nacho leftovers, these were a hit with the whole family even miss 5 year old. Thanks for posting!

    We used low carb tortillas and shortened the stacks to make these, but we really enjoyed them and will definitely make again. (I spread the chicken and sour cream mixture on one tortilla, covered with one spread with guacamole, then just sprinkled the cheese right on top of the guacamole.) Delicious and easy. Thanks for posting.

    When asked by my boyfriend what I was cooking for dinner I said Mexican Pizzas. To me, that's what this recipe is. Great balance of ingredients. I made it exactly as directed. I wouldn't go making it to impress guests, but it's a nice alternative to taco night.

    These were good, though I think a lot of the components get lost in it, especially the chicken and the guacamole. I would definitely save the guacamole to top it with, use lots more cilantro and maybe also top it with some chopped tomatoes. I think step 7 means stack it bean side up. If you are serving this as a meal instead of an appetizer, it would feed 3-5 people, depending on how much you eat.

    Excellent! These were wonderful. I made some homemade guacamole to use in this. We love cilantro and thought it was the perfect finishing touch. Thanks for sharing!


    I made this using black beans instead of refried beans. I also leftout the guacamole as a personnel preference. Made for Went to Market Tag

    Really good! My family doesn't like guacamole so I left that layer out. I used ground beef fried up with onions instead of the cooked chicken. I also sprinkled some chopped red pepper and a little bit of cheddar cheese on top of the refried bean layer before I put the final tortilla and cheese on top. We also don't care for cilantro so I left that out as well. It made for a tasty supper!


I was one of the original members of Recipezaar that was truly a community of individuals that enjoyed each other in forums and chat rooms. I've been a member of this site since 2003. Made some tremendous friends that I still think of often. I'll continue coming here because my recipes are here and so many more that I tried over the years as a member. It's just a tad boring now and just another recipe site like all the rest. Sad.
