    I have had this recipe for years and since then I am vegetarian. I have modified using cream of onion or cream of celery soup and pinto beans instead of chicken. You can do so much with this.

    I made this for Sunday family supper. It was a big hit! I added a bag of frozen corn to the mixture and used chipotle chilies. It was so delicious!

    Yum, yum! My teen grandson rated it 9 out of 10, but his dad gave it a 10! They liked the flour tortillas better than my old recipe. I used rotisserie chicken.

    Love it! I do tweak everything though. I added a little pepper and garlic powder, as well as a can of fiesta corn (sweet corn w/peppers) it's a texture thing for me. You just get a little crunch along the way.

    I have made my own version of this using different flavors of Doritos instead of tortillas. It always good. Hard to mess up.

    Can this recipe be made ahead and frozen before cooking? My kids looked it.
