    We liked it. For us next time I’ll add less sour cream, chicken broth, and more cheese but will make again. Thank you.

    I’ve made this so many times now, it’s super good! I’ve used rotisserie chicken and I’ve tried it with chicken thighs I’ve cooked-both are great. I do lettuce wraps, hubby does tortillas and we both like it with some blue corn chips too (as a dip) I get block pepper jack and shred so it’s melty and fresh and added cilantro and scallion. If it comes out too spicy, we serve with guac and rice. Super easy and warms up great.

    Tasted like it was from a restaurant. I used John Souls Food fajita chicken for the meat.

    It was good. I added cilantro. I added some smoked paprika as well. It is definitely worth making again.

    A little lacking on flavor for a Mexican dish but will make again

    Excellent! Only issue I have is it’s not enough as my hubby (who doesn’t like casseroles) had three servings! Making a double batch in an effort to stay on track with our low carb lifestyle, eat less processed frozen meals, and have something new to grab and go during the week. I used a low carb heat seasoning instead of chili powder to kick it up a notch. Definitely a win win! Yum!

    It was pretty good, nothing super special I did add extra seasoning and some diced jalapeños. I think if you’re not specifically doing low carb, I think some tortillas or tortilla chips added in would be good.

    It was very good! I didn’t modify it besides leaving a few of the spices out.

    We added jalapeños and mushrooms. My wife and I think it tastes like a chicken quesadilla, delightful. Next time we may add cream cheese

    Tasty, but 2 teaspoons of salt was one too many. Will make a again.

    Turned out yummy! A hit for my whole family. I didnt put in as much chili powder as recipe called for, but kept everything else the same.

    It was good. Too spicy for my teenage daughter so I will make again, but avoid chili powder and find milder salsa. I already reduced red onion to half, replaced red pepper with broccoli and added white rice on the side. All very tasty, but too spicy.

    This is my go to dinner when I'm short on time. It keeps well in the fridge so I can eat off of it for a couple of days. It's a great and easy recipe that keeps me on my diet. I do add broccoli and cauliflower to it.
