This dish was quick and easy to make, and so tasty, too. I used the tortilla chip option, which I coarsely crushed with my hands as I put them in the baking dish. Also, I used 4-cheese blend Mexican cheese. This dish will be great for those nights when I need to get dinner on the table in a hurry. Thank you for sharing! **Made for Susie's World Tour 2019 - Fusion Cuisine**

This is a great dish. Would work for potlucks and buffets. I used the tortilla chip option. Great way to use leftover cooked chicken.

I loved everything about this dish. The instructions didn't state how long to fry the tortillas, so I cooked them 3 at a time until they were lightly browned (about 2 minutes), and that seemed to work OK for me. But this was so tasty, so easy to prepare, and so well received by my family. It's the kind of "comfort food" my mom made when we were little kids (minus the green chiles though), so I was fairly certain it would be a hit in my home. And I was right! Thank you, ellie. We loved it!
