    Looks delish

    I haven't made this dish yet. I was wondering if a person could use tortilla chips instead of tortillas? I have all the ingredients in the house, but the beans. I don't like them. So, could I use rice or something else in it? I would use olives too. And it sounds like it needs more chili seasonings.

    It’s important to note that using tortilla chips instead or tortillas may affect the texture of this recipe. If you don’t like beans, leave them out! Just remember – if you’re going to use rice instead, it may affect your baking time.

    Longer, but good

    In all, my hubby and I liked it (our toddler, not so much). Down side: recipe calls for 2 cups of cooked cubed chicken. Since we buy our chicken breast in bulk, we don't have pre-cooked/pre-cubed chicken, so I had to cut up and cook the chicken which added 20-30 minutes onto the preparation time. That may be the only reason I wouldn't want to do it again. Tasted very good.
