    My family really loved this meal--we served it with lettuce, tomatoes, salsa, rice, and refried beans on the side. It was awesome and will become a regular with everyone. Thanks!! - 12/18/09

    Very Good
    This was very good! I do a lot of OAMC, so I tried this one out. I made up the chicken mixture, and then froze the tortillas seperately. I messed up layering the casserole and it still turned out good. Definately will add this to my rotation! Thanks! - 2/18/11

    Very good. My 15 year old daughter picked it out and made it herself. Only change we made was to add a jalapeno to spice it up. There weren't any leftovers to see find out if it was good left over! - 10/6/10
