    awful lot of calories for not a large serving - 6/14/09

    Did you use a LARGE 10 inch tortilla? It's the same size serving as a small submarine sandwich - which, if you look them up, are around 350 calories. It is not a lot of calories for this size serving.

    I love this recipe. In fact we make it regularly! For convenience, we have started using rotisserie chicken. So economical that we get several meals out of it for about $10 bucks total!! More calories with the rotisserie, but worth it. Use 6" tortillas and serve w/spicy fat free beans! - 3/1/11

    Very nice recipe. I found the 40 min heating time ~ too long ~ I did and they were dry. Next time I will cook only 20 min.
    I added couple of shakes of cumin. Also, I moisten tortillas with little water and put in microwave for 20ish secs between moisten paper towel. This softens them nicely

    Soooo good! I used a variety of spices, added green peppers and this corn I had with chiles in it. I also topped with kraft Mexican blend cheese w/jalapenos and then sour cream before serving and it was AMAZING! - 8/12/08
