    Since I always add my own kick to a recipe, I changed this up a bit. Added a can of green chilies, a package of taco seasoning mix and a cheap jar of salsa to the cream of chicken/sour cream mixture. Layered the corn chips in two layers and used a package of grated Monterey Jack cheese. It was a huge hit with my family!

    Update: I thawed and reheated leftovers - it was very tasty. Maybe this recipe is one that needs time for flavors to marry. I'm rating it today! Older Review: I was disappointed. Being from the South, we like our Mexican dishes having lots of flavor. I increased the Salsa to 1/2 cup and used a Mexican form of sour cream. Upon another reviewer's comment, I added a pinch of cayenne pepper. The dish was bland and the corn chip flavor over-powered. I would prefer a white corn or tortilla chip. DO TRY this dish as it may be perfect for you - if you want more zing, you may wish to alter the recipe. I must add that my picky DD cleaned her plate.

    I needed something fast and easy and this dish certainly fit the bill. I followed the recipe with a few modifications. I used two large cans (14.5 oz) of Kirkland brand chicken breast, drained, I only had 1 1/2 cups of the corn chips so I compensated with 1 1/2 cups corn tortilla chips, I used Kraft Mexican blend shredded cheese (not the seasoned kind) and I added a 4 oz can of chopped mild green chilis. I put the corn chips in the center layer and the tortilla chips on the top. I don't know if there were too many chips or if it would have been better if I had used all corn chips, but the tortilla chips really seemed to over power the rest of the dish. That is except for the cheese. I am a huge cheese fan and usually put more cheese in a recipe than called for. But i used the full 2 cups of cheese in a square 8x8 2 quart casserole and I think that's too much cheese for a dish this size, so next time I scale back a little on the cheese and the chips. Even without these changes, the dish was good. My husband said it was really good after he added more salsa to the top of the dish after serving. My kids and I ate about a third of the casserole, and when my husband got home from softball, he finished off the rest. For the ease, and for as much as my husband liked this, it gets a solid 4 stars from us. We will be making this again. Thanks!

    This is very flavorful. I didn't have any Fritos on hand. (I bought some, but my 16-year-old ate them!) Anyway, I used tortilla chips instead. It would have been better with Fritos, so I'll definitely try it again and hide the Fritos from my son time!!

    When I make this, I boil the chicken, then add cream of chicken soup, sour cream, mayo and egg noodles. Then I top it with crushed potato chips and it is absolutely delicious.
